Call For Papers

The upcoming issue 7(1) of the Austrian Journal of South-East Asian Studies (ASEAS) will feature a focus on “Conflict Dynamics and Transformations in South-East Asia” and aims at bringing together researchers from various academic fields in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of this complex topic. In a broader perspective, the term “conflict” refers to the expression of opposing interests that shape complex societal negotiation processes. Although the mode of procedural conflict resolution through legitimate institutions is usually deemed most desirable, the post-colonial states of South-East Asia are still the arena of a significant number of intra-state conflicts that have been carried out violently, some for decades. On the other hand, during the last decade, South-East Asian governments have increasingly started to move from military conflict resolution approaches towards politically negotiated resolutions. To understand these dynamics and assess their implications for future developments in the region, ASEAS welcomes submissions on methodological and theoretical approaches to conflict studies as well as empirical research that illustrate recent trajectories of conflict dynamics and transformations in South-East Asia.

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 conflict resolution
Methodological challenges for empirical research in conflict-affected areas
Methodological contributions to the field: methods to understand root causes of conflicts, the interests and intentions of actors, and the transformation of conflicts from arms to politics
Studies in decentralization politics, their impact on center-periphery relations, and their contribution to conflict resolution
(Comparative) analyses of autonomy regulations and their impact on conflict dynamics, transformations, and resolutions
Interethnic and interreligious conflicts
Resource and environmental conflicts
Gender relations in conflict-affected and post-conflict areas
Transnational dimensions of local conflicts
The role of the ASEAN and other international organizations in conflict resolution approaches and mechanisms
Truth and reconciliation processes and their institutionalization
Local institutions of conflict mediation, regulation, and resolution

As always, book reviews and suggestions for interviews
are welcome. Please contact us for further
questions and to notify us of your intention to submit.
