Call for Papers: Picturing the International Relations of the LAC Region
What role do Latin American Countries and Countries from the Caribbean (LAC) play on a World Stage? We are looking for analyses and articles from young scholars and researchers for our think tank shading light on the complex and interwoven international relations of the LAC region and countries.
- How is the LAC region influenced by international politics and how does it shape them? How are LAC countries for example acting in international organizations such as the United Nations?
- What goals do they envision for the sustainable development of our planet and what is their role in international development cooperation? What are their partners or traditional rivals?
- What political or economic cooperation and agreements do you consider useful or rather destructive for the region or certain countries? How could for example the BRICS or international trade agreements like the envisioned EU-Mercosur agreement boost economic development or harm domestic production and product sovereignty? What could be their cultural implications?
If these questions or any other topic dealing with the international relations of the LAC region is of interest to you, we offer you the opportunity to publish your article on the IFAIR think tank.
Your article can touch on the whole LAC region but also deal with a specific country, an organization or certain societies and should critically engage with one specific research question. It should be about 1.500 words (analysis) or 500 words (opinion) long and be handed in in Microsoft Word format to IFAIR’s regional director for Latin America and the Caribbean Carlotta Schilling email@example.com. Articles are accepted on a rolling basis until January 31st. For the IFAIR guidelines see this flyer. Please also do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any further questions.
