Call for Papers
Deadline for submissions: 15 August 2019
Issue 2, 2019, of "Südosteuropa" offers a thematic section on „Social Policies, Demographic Patterns, and Inclusion Strategies“, guest edited by Ekaterina Skoglund.
The thematic section is devoted to social policies toward the vulnerable population groups, including the elderly, migrants, and the homeless. Pieter Vanhuysse (Odense) focuses on the state strategies in material benefits provision for vulnerable groups and highlights the role of those strategies in reducing the resistance to market reforms in early postcommunist Hungary and Poland. Petru Negură (Chișinău) discusses the assistive and repressive approaches in state policies toward the homeless in Moldova, while Tahir Latifi (Prishtina) reveals that social and family networks substitute the state in providing the social security and elderly care in Kosovo. Veronika Duci (Tirana), Elona Dhembo (Tirana), and Zana Vathi (Ormskirk) continue the topic of precarious aging and pension provision, focusing on the Albanian migrants returning from Greece. Finally, Ekaterina Skoglund and Astrid Bretthauer (Regensburg) describe state and local strategies of integration of East and Southeast European migrants on the way to their inclusion in the German society.
In the Open Section, Dmytro Khutkyy (Helsinki) writes about recent electronic democracy initiatives in Belarus, Moldova, and Ukraine.
Südosteuropa. Journal of Politics and Society is an English-language, multidisciplinary journal for the exploration of critical societal issues and processes related to southeastern Europe after the systemic changes of 1989/90. It serves as a forum for current work in Southeast and East European Studies, including Political Science, Sociology, International Relations, Contemporary History, Economics, Anthropology, Law Studies, Gender Studies as well as Cultural Studies. All manuscripts are subject to a process of double-blind peer-reviewing. The journal welcomes comparative perspectives towards adjacent regions as well as analyses and theoretical issues with implications for other world areas. In addition, it features a book review section (accessible also online at recensio.net). Its geographical scope is the area that lies between the eastern Adriatic, the eastern Mediterranean, and the Black Sea.
The contributions to Sudosteuropa are indexed in the bibliography IBZ (Internationale Bibliographie der geistes- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Zeitschriftenliteratur), the Worldwide Political Science Abstracts (WPSA), the International Political Science Abstracts (IPSA) and the Sociological Abstracts (SA). They are further listed in the database World Affairs Online and in the International Relations and Area Studies Gateway (IREON).
