Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern Studies - JBNES

Cover page

The Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern Studies (JBNES) is the leading English language journal for the study of the complex historical, economic, political, diplomatic, cultural and security issues that confront the region of the Balkans and the Near East. JBNES constructs an academic forum to bring together disparate scholarly perspectives and publishes research on the nation-states of the Ballkans, Central Asia, the Middle East and the Caucasus, from 1945 to the present day. The journal encourages historical research, comparative approaches, critical scholarship and a diversity of international relations, political economy and geo-political/geo-strategic views on the region.

JBNES publishes research articles, review articles and occasional book reviews and is indexed in the Thomson Reuters Social Sciences Citation Index®. Proposals for special issues on contemporary issues concerning the region are also welcomed.
