Call for Papers: ISA-CISS Krakow 2015

The global community continues to confront a diverse range of traditional and non-traditional challenges as it moves through the second decade of the 21st century. Many traditional challenges include domestic tensions that, in turn, often lead to crime, civil unrest, terrorism, revolution, and civil war. Similarly, international tensions, stemming from a variety of causes and exacerbated by a range of considerations, often leads to armed hostilities between states. The global community is also confronted by a range of non-traditional challenges, including: environmental pollution and global warming, with its accompanying climate changes, the rise in the sea level, etc. In addition, the international community continues to be challenged in the incorporation of new technologies that, in turn, further open, but simultaneously raise questions concerning the roles played by the global community in non-traditional domains, such as cyber communications and the use of space. Each of these traditional and non-traditional challenges has direct or indirect impact on mankind's security, the protection of human rights, and the equitable material development of the global community.

An interdisciplinary perspective would contribute to our understanding of these complex and often interrelated challenges. In these efforts, the perspectives of the humanities and the arts are as important as those of the social and natural sciences. Similarly, the perspectives of business, law, medicine, etc. are all also necessary and must be incorporated into many of the solutions if the global community is to be successful in developing responses to these 21st century challenges.

This conference seeks to bring together a wide range of leaders drawn from academia, government, business, etc. in an effort to promote and advance an interdisciplinary dialogue aimed at finding effective solutions to the challenges that confront the contemporary global community and, perhaps, transform a few of these challenges into opportunities that will serve to enhance the security and promote the prosperity of the whole of mankind.

Proposals for papers, panels, and roundtables are invited from scholars, practitioners and students of international relations. Please check this site for updates and more detailed information on the conference including, links to proposal forms.
