2018 Peace and Stability Operations Training and Education Workshop Call For Papers

The Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute (PKSOI) promotes the collaborative development and integration of Peace and Stability capabilities across the U.S. Government and the international community in order to enable the success of future Peace and Stability activities and missions. To support this mission, PKSOI is seeking PhD level scholarship on issues surrounding peace and stability operations to inform agenda development for the 2018 Peace and Stability Operations Training and Education Workshop (PSOTEW), scheduled for 18-20 April 2018.

PKSOI recognizes the importance of drawing upon academic expertise and specialization, and seeks support from the academy to better understand and resource current research and scholarship from across the globe.  Contributions will be reviewed to ascertain relevance to PKSOI issues of interest and areas of potential future research and collaboration.  Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: ▪ Peacekeeping and Stability Operations ▪ Protection of Civilians ▪ Women, Peace and Security ▪ Mass Atrocity/Genocide/Democide Warning ▪ Security Cooperation & Security Sector Reform ▪ Military Contributions to Peace Support ▪ Conflict Assessment Models ▪ Whole of Government Approach to Development ▪ Framework for Appropriately Sized Stability Forces ▪ Public Order Management Best Practices

Original works will be eligible for inclusion in an edited volume produced by the US Army War College Press addressing PSOTEW themes.  Previously published works bringing innovative research and perspectives to bear are also welcomed to provide insight and guidance to the shaping of the agenda, and may be incorporated into our Stability Operations Lessons Learned Information Management System (SOLLIMS).  

Please submit your contributions to PKSOI Peace Operations Analyst  When submitting your paper, please also include your preferred citation for the work, and whether you give permission for your contribution to be posted to a document repository on SOLLIMS.  Please submit all contributions by 1 October 2017.
