The Institute of International Relations Prague (IIR) is currently offering the position of a visiting scholar. It is an open call for all non-Czech senior or mid-career scholars or researchers regardless of their institutional or national affiliation.
The First Issue of New Perspectives: Interdisciplinary Journal of Central & East European Politics and International Relations, Institute of International Relations Prague
We are delighted to announce the publication of the first issue of New Perspectives: Interdisciplinary Journal of Central & East European Politics and International Relations. Like its forerunner, Perspectives, New Perspectives is published by the Institute of International Relations Prague, but it is now intended to provoke new constellations of scholarship across approaches and disciplines in order to challenge received wisdoms on and in the region. The first issue contains four original research articles, which address a variety of topics from the political philosophy of Giorgio Agamben to the social construction of ‘contagion’ and ‘stability’ in the Eurozone crisis, Czech perceptions on Turkish EU membership and parliamentary oversight of EU legislation. There is also an intervention piece on NATO’s Russia strategy and a forum of responses to the IMEMO ‘Russia and the World 2015 Report’. The Editorial and two sample articles are available to everyone online at the journal’s blog site. Submissions to Editor-in-Chief Benjamin Tallis firstname.lastname@example.org.
