CALL FOR PAPERS: Climate Change and Conflict
The African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD) invites academics from the social sciences, practitioners, policy makers and policy researchers to submit abstracts and subsequent papers that consider issues related to climate and conflict challenges and interventions in Africa, and the development of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures that are conflict sensitive. Abstracts should be submitted by Friday 10 June 2011 and selected papers will be due on 19 August 2011. An expert seminar at which authors will be presenting their papers will take place on 15 & 16 September 2011, in Durban, South Africa. ACCORD will cover travel, meals and accommodation expenses for invited participants.
The key outcomes of the seminar will be presented in the form of a Policy and Practice Brief distributed at a series of side events during the 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change at the end of 2011 in Durban. In addition, selected papers from the seminar will be published in the form of an edited volume in 2012.
Deadline: June 10, 2011
