Call for submission – Populism and conflict essay series

Populism and Conflict, an essay series curated by Dr. Julian Kuttig on the Governance in Conflict Network (GiC) website, is calling for submissions that apply a critical lens in exploring the relationship between vernacular forms of populism and (violent) conflict. The essay series looks for innovative contributions that offer novel empirical, methodological, or theoretical insights. The essay format is positioned between an opinion piece and a full-blown academic journal article and offers a low threshold opportunity for graduate, PH.D., or postdoc students to try out ideas, voice academically informed opinions, and contribute to an ongoing debate.   

In order to get an idea for a possible contribution, please read the introduction to the essay series and look at the essays that have already been published (e.g., ‚Populism in Ethiopia‚ or ‚The „Freedom Fighter“ Bobi Wine‘). The GiC Network provides language and copy editing.

To submit an essay, please send the manuscript as a word document to .
