The African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD) is presently soliciting contributions for the second 2013 Issue of Conflict Trends (2013, Issue 2). This will be a Special Training for Peace (TfP) Issue on "Gender Mainstreaming in Peacekeeping" (in Africa) and will aim to highlight the debates on increased gender participation, as well as the inclusion of gender perspectives into peacekeeping/peace support operations. The Issue will provide a forum for reflection and analyses from academics, policy-makers and practitioners in conceptualising and understanding key issues on the subject of gender and peacekeeping operations. We thus welcome submissions on any topic linked to this specific focus.
Articles must be 2 500 - 3 000 words in length. The deadline for submission of fully completed articles for Issue 2, 2013 is 10 April 2013.
