[Call for Papers] The Asian Journal of Peacebuilding (AJP) is a semiannual peer-reviewed journal housed at the Institute of Peace and Unification Studies, Seoul National University. It publishes original research on the topics of violence, conflict, and peacebuilding around the world. The aim of the AJP is twofold: first, to promote innovative research on issues related to peacebuilding in Asia, a region where national divisions, transitions, and developments are intertwined with new forms of threat, violence, and destruction; and second, it aims to disseminate peace studies conducted both in the traditional disciplines of the social sciences and humanities, as well as in interdisciplinary fields at the interface of religion, culture, ecology, and gender studies. The AJP welcomes papers written by scholars around the world, both within and outside of the Asian region. Exemplary topics that the AJP focuses on include (but are not limited to): reconciliation in divided societies (or nations); migrants and refugees, weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) development; development and ecological destruction; historical and territorial disputes; anti-nuclear weapons (or anti-nuclear power) movements; gender issues in conflict zones; democratic transition and human rights; post-conflict institutionalization; and humanitarian assistance and protection.

The AJP is indexed by SCOPUS (Elsevier) and the Korean Citation Index (KCI). 

The AJP accepts submissions on a rolling basis, but to be considered for publication in the 2020 Spring (May) issue, submissions should be made by December 31, 2019.
