Call for Papers – Special Issue of Contexto Internacional: Journal of Global Connections “Connecting foreign policy and social demands in Latin America”

Contexto Internacional: journal of global connections will publish in 2016 a special issue on the phenomenon of ‘foreign policy politicization’ in Latin America. The guest editors (Dawisson Lopes, UFMG/Brazil and Carlos Faria, PUCMG/Brazil) are looking for manuscripts – be it case studies, comparative or conceptual-theoretical research articles – that examine the transformations/changes in the processes and institutional frameworks of foreign policy making settings recently observed in the region in order to meet the political demands of their countries’ populations. Contributions on topics relating to intra and intergovernmental coordination, inter-sectorial articulation and the efforts for narrowing the gaps between societal and governmental views and positions in foreign policy making, may be of great interest and heuristic value, as we still know very little about how those processes work in South America, Central America, the Caribbean, and Mexico.

Evaluation process will proceed in three stages. Abstracts of up to 300 words can be submitted by August 15th, 2015 to  Full papers of pre-selected proposals are due on October 30th, 2015. Approved papers will be submitted to scientific arbitration, in a double-blind process. Publication of all manuscripts is conditional to reviewers’ and editorial’s approval.
