Stability: International Journal of Security and Development


Stability is a new type of journal, one intended to present scholarly research with minimal delay and in a manner accessible to policymakers and practitioners.

The journal features research into those interventions, including stabilisation, stability operations, development assistance, state building and humanitarian aid, which aim to end conflicts, prevent conflict recurrence and foster peace.

Call for Papers
Stability welcomes articles from a range of disciplines, including political science, development studies, international relations, sociology, criminology, anthropology, psychology and the law, among others. The journal will focus upon stabilisation through international missions as well as by governments within their own territories. The following topics will appear relatively regularly within the pages of Stability:

	Civil-military interaction
	Conflict prevention/risk reduction
	Constitutional and legislative affairs
	Correlates of conflict
	Corruption and illicit networks
	Counterinsurgency tactics
	Crime reduction
	Demographics and human geography
	Disarmament, demobilisation & reintegration
	Economic growth and livelihoods
	Governance and political legitimacy
	International cooperation/organization
	Judicial/justice sector reform
	Law and legal regimes
	Organised crime and gang violence
	Peacekeeping or peace support operations
	Security sector reform
	Stability operations
	State- and nation-building
	Urban studies and challenges
	Whole of government or whole of system approaches

Stability will primarily publish full research articles (5-7,000 words) but will also feature shorter “practice notes” (3-5,000 words) and “commentaries” (1-2,000 word) insofar as they are well informed, critical and contribute to knowledge and thinking at the security-development nexus.
