Call for Contributors: LSE IDEAS Balkania Blog

The Balkans International Affairs Programme at LSE IDEAS, the centre for
the study of diplomacy and strategy at the London School of Economics,
is seeking contributors for the Balkans section of LSE IDEAS Blog on
International Affairs. ( 
The Blog is intended to provide dispassionate analysis of current
diplomatic and strategic issues in the Balkans. The broad methodological
paradigm should be thought of as realist in its broadest sense: focused
on power, the state and the international system, but acknowledging
ideas and the internal characteristics of societies. We seek to analyse
the world as it is, not as we would like it to be. Fundamentally, the
blog is about international affairs: politics as opposed to history or
Posts should therefore deal with one or more of the following: 
* Foreign policies of states 
* The specific diplomatic impact of multilateral forums 
* The impact of external actors 
* Structural dynamics -economic, political, security 
* Internal forces as the impact upon international issues 
The Blog should not: 
* Be partisan 
* Be purely normative 
* Deal with questions of purely theoretical interest 
* Analyse purely domestic forces 
* Focus solely on cultural or "soft" factors. 
Posts length should be around 800-1300 words 
If you want to get involved, please write to
with a 50 word blurb about the title of the post you would like to
write. We will get back to you shortly.
