Conflict, Security and Development offers policy-relevant analysis of the immense economic and political changes taking place at the global level and their impact on developing and transitional countries. There is growing recognition of the need for more integrated international responses to the problems that these societies face, which combine development, security and diplomatic instruments. The journal bridges traditional development and security studies through its focus on cross-cutting policy agendas, such as conflict prevention and security-sector reform, and also establishes connections with related disciplines, including international relations, anthropology, political economy and regional studies. Not only does the journal fill this analytical vacuum with fresh, objective and intellectually provocative research, but it also offers a forum for the cross-fertilisation of ideas and for reasoned and rigorous debate between the academic and policy communities in both the North and the South. Conflict, Security and Development adopts an innovative format: extended theoretical and conceptual articles and operational and regional case studies are accompanied by concise opinion pieces that provide an opportunity for academics and non-academics - policymakers, practitioners, journalists and opinion-shapers - to contribute to the emerging discourse, and to share their knowledge and diverse experiences. In addition, each issue contains a debate section in which two authors present a different viewpoint on an issue of contemporary concern, such as the relationship between development and terrorism and the challenge of controlling small-arms proliferation.
