Call For Papers

The upcoming issue 6(1) of the Austrian Journal of South-East Asian Studies will feature a focus on Social Movements in South-East Asia, and will aim at bringing together established scholars and junior researchers from various academic fields in order to do the interdisciplinary nature of this broad topic justice. Emphasis shall be placed on both structure and dynamics of social movements and their specific local contextualisation as well as transnational predicaments. The intersection of this issue with larger topics of political and economic systems, labour, migration, health, environment, and peace, but also with aspects of culture, religion, gender, age, race and class, shifting along multiple scales and dimensions, shall contribute to a diversified approach of the publication.

If you intend to submit a paper, please contact the editorial board (, as this facilitates our planning process. Submissions dealing with one or several of the following issues are of special interest to the board of editors:

• Theoretical debates on social movements and conceptual challenges resulting from empirical research on recent developments;
• Social movements as genuine political actors and their relations to state, NGOs, and other institutionalised public and private actors;
• Strategic alliances, interventions, and collective action on local, national, and international scale and the role of transnational net
• Collective action, labour and trade unions, and their local, regional, cultural, and national specificities in the settings of influential global economic forces and neoliberal reforms;
• Urban movements, mobilisation, and the contestation of local policies and national regimes;
• Social media and digital space as the new environments for mobilisation, organisation, and protest;
• Civil rights movements and the construction of transnational solidarity across ethnic, religious, and geopolitical boundaries;
• Negotiation and contestation of difference within social movements – distinctions of culture, religion, gender, age, race, and class;
• Indigenous movements in connection with local policies in the settings of global networking and connectivity;
• Women’s movements and the reconfiguration of gender relations with reference to concepts of social equality and justice;

• As always, book reviews and suggestions for interviews are welcome (for further details, please contact the board of editors);
