Journal Southeastern Europe (JSEE)

Aim of the journal

JSEE logo

Eastern Europe has disappeared, first, in the reemergence of the distinction between Central and Balkan Europe, and second, in the integration of the former to the European Union. Eastern Europe is dead, long live Southeastern Europe. Transitology is out of fashion.

What comes next? The Journal Southeastern Europe does not aim at constructing a new single paradigm but to be a pioneer in contextualization and conceptualization of South East European developments. Three pillars build its theoretical universe:

  • Pluridisciplinarity – political science, history, sociology, law, anthropology, cultural studies
  • Interdisciplinarity – issues like nationalism, ethnicity, human rights do not belong to any particular discipline and need the contribution of several of them
  • Comparative approach often replaces verification in social sciences and gives a theoretical background for “measuring” the uniqueness or commonness of the phenomena

The journal Southeastern Europe has interest in both results of theoretical research and informed policy debate, implications of research for policy innovation, analysis of the outcome of previous initiatives.

Structure of the journal

The content of the Journal is structured in six parts:

  • Editor’s essay focusing on a different aspect and encouraging the reader to explore the region within the parameters set by the editorial leadership
  • Articles on variety of topics. Every article is accompanied by a summary
  • Forum: scholarly interview in dept of a political personality, critically evaluated by another scholar
  • Debate: two/three separate reviews of the same book and an author’s reply
  • Reviews of books published in the languages of South Eastern Europe
  • News: information for the intellectual life in the region (innovative initiatives, new institutes, important international conferences, etc.)
