The SACCPS is proud to announce the release of volume 2, number 1 of Southern Africa Peace and Security Studies. The journal can be accessed freely online, with the journal as a whole, or individual articles available for downloading.
This issue is in part a special issue with a focus on the issue of power-sharing, and is guest edited by Professor Katabaro Miti at the University of Pretoria. Apart from his overview of power-sharing in the region, there is also an article on power-sharing in Madagascar, by Dirk Kotze; and one on power-sharing in Zimbabwe, by Gladys Mokhawa.
The issue contains two other full papers: one on political risk in South Africa by Theo Neethling; and another on Japan and peacekeeping operations in the region by Rui Faro Saraiva. There is also a policy brief on the DRC peace process by Gerrie Swart, followed by some book reviews.
We expect to release volume 2 number 2 by March 2014, and will be accepting submissions for volume 3 number 1 up until 15 April 2014. We publish academic articles, policy briefs (practitioners are welcome), and book reviews on any topics related to peace and security in the southern African region (interpreted broadly). Please see the journal homepage for details on preparing a submission.
