After a successful launch of the first edition of the Pathfinder, an online journal of Peace and Conflict Studies, I am happy to announce that we are getting ready for the second edition (scheduled to go online in January 2010). The Pathfinder is geared towards furthering the understanding of conflict and proposes innovative approaches to building peace by means of a multi-disciplinary approach that explores issues such as identity, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, human rights, non-violence, social change, social justice, social movements, human and environmental security, sustainable development, governance and democracy.
I encourage you to start thinking possible topics and papers (including your class papers) that might fit the broad scope of The Pathfinder. An official call for papers will go out sometime towards the end of this semester with the deadline for submissions scheduled for tbe beginning of the Fall semester.
For those who have not yet had a chance to take a look at the current edition of the Pathfinder, the URL is: thepathfinderjournal.com
Julia Steger, a third semester student of conflict resolution and migration studies will assist me as the student editor for the second edition.
