The Global South Journal of Research on Security and Development is a scholarly peer reviewed open-access publication in the field of security and development. The journal is committed to exploring the dialectical relationship between security and development. In other words, how do challenges associated with development create security problems and how do security problems in turn can affect development?
Aims & Scope
The journal is bilingual (English & French) and multidisciplinary. The Journal publishes well-researched articles and evidence-informed field notes in areas such as poverty and inequalities, social justice, social protection, development, conflict, peace and security. The journal aims to promote learning between academic researchers, practitioners and policy-makers. The journal is published in association with the Institute of Delta and Development Studies (IDDS), Western Delta University. Western Delta University inaugurated IDDS in 2013 as part of its academic mandate. The Institute seeks to interrogate the socio-economic consequences of oil production in Nigeria’s Niger Delta and the challenges associated with security and sustainable development globally. The Institute works with academics, non-governmental organizations, governmental agencies and civil society to make a difference in people’s lives.
The editorial team is committed to inclusion and diversity in publishing, encouraging submissions from scholars in the Global South. Although the journal is produced in Nigeria, the editorial board is global and involves scholars of African, American, Asian, European and Latin American ancestry.
