nationalsecuritylaw Call for Papers: Royal United Services Institute

* Call for papers, Royal United Services Institute

To mark the tenth anniversary of 9/11, the August/September 2011 RUSI Journal will review the lessons learned – and not learned – of the past ten years. We invite unpublished manuscripts and papers on all issues relating to global terrorism and insurgency, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and homeland security.

In particular, we welcome articles that seek to add to our understanding of the following questions:

§ Did 9/11 ‘change everything’?

§ Will the ‘phenomenon’ of global jihadism last into the next decade and beyond?

§ What have been the key developments of the international system in the last ten years?

§ Did 9/11 re-write the long-term challenges to defence and security?

§ Will today’s counter-insurgency doctrine stand the test of time?

The submissions deadline is Friday 10 June 2011.

Articles should be between 3,000 and 4,500 words, including endnotes. Electronic submissions should be sent for the attention of the editor to publications. Please follow the guidelines for contributors available at

The RUSI Journal is published six times a year, and welcomes rigorous and analytical articles on a rolling submission basis. Articles should be relevant to RUSI’s intellectual ambit, and be original, thoroughly researched and succinct. For more information, please contact the editor at the above email address or in writing to Editor, RUSI Journal, Royal United Services Institute, Whitehall, London, SW1A 2ET.
