Call For Papers

Call for papers

Deadline: Friday 7th February 2014

Submissions are invited for the inaugural Glasgow Perspectives on Conflict Conference to be held on Friday 6th June 2014. This interdisciplinary conference seeks to enhance the debate on issues surrounding the idea of “conflict” covering any areas in which there are tensions which could give rise to division.

Perspectives on Conflict is open to researchers from all social science backgrounds working on different conceptions of conflict, from the traditional characterisation of conflict as war to conflicts between national and European law on the interpretation of contract terms, to sociological theories of conflict and their resolution. The conference call is open to early career researchers (i.e. those in the later stages of their doctoral studies or having received their PhD within the last few years) who adopt practical or theoretical perspectives to their work in conflict.

We welcome submissions in all areas of Law, Sociology, Economy, Education and other Social Sciences, including (among others): crime and criminal justice; consumer law and economics; contract law; identities and social change; governance and the state; financial crisis management; human rights development; international politics; criminal and civil procedure; competition law; family law and family studies; succession law; sociological studies; conflicts in education (schools and universities). Unsolicited proposals are also welcome.

If you would like to present a paper, please submit a paper title, a brief summary and a short biography to by Friday 7th February 2014. Paper proposals should not exceed 500 words in length. Successful applicants will be notified shortly after the application deadline. Proposals should reflect original research and presenters must submit a draft paper ahead of the conference. Final papers should be around 8,000 words.

If you have any queries regarding the conference, please contact the Organising Committee at For more information about the conference, please go to
