A special issue of Peace Review was recently released this December before the 2014 year commences. The latest issue of the journal entitled, Symposium: Climate Change and Peace is not only edited by the Center for Unconventional Security Affairs Director, Richard Matthew, but it additionally features articles from scholars and practitioners around the world. This list includes Nobel Laureate Ira Helfand, award winning authors Simon Dalby and Paul Wapner, and UCI’s Jay Famiglietti, Arturo Jiminez-Bacardi and Daniel Wehrenfennig with their article entitled, “Climate Science and Peace in the Middle East.”
Peace Review is a quarterly, multidisciplinary, transnational journal of research and analysis, focusing on the current issues and controversies that underlie the promotion of a more peaceful world. The journal defines peace research very broadly to include peace, human rights, development, ecology, culture and related issues. Social progress requires, among other things, sustained intellectual work, which should be pragmatic as well as analytical. The journal firmly upholds its stance that results of this intellectual work should be ingrained into everyday culture and political discourse.
