Call and Protocol for Contributions

Clivatge #4



Reception period of articles for the next issue of Clivatge #4 is open.


As you already know, we are basically interested in analyses of recent social phenomena related to situations of social change and conflict. We also expect to receive writings which are testimony of social movements, platforms or organizations, of their actions of protest or social innovations. Equally, we expect to get reviews of recent works connected with our journal's subjects.


In this issue, we shall prioritize articles dealing with the following topics:


  1. The crisis of the European project, in its several dimensions –socioeconomic and geopolitical aspects, issues connected to policies of political asylum, and political issues in general–: oppositional dynamics and signs of governance failure such as the mobilizations in favour of abandoning the euro, the problems to manage migration processes, the confrontational lines between the EU and Greece, etc.

  2. Denunciations of injustice and demands for social change in Latin America.

  3. Foreseeable (or announced) political changes in Latin America.

  4. "Delayed" perception of the social and economic effects of the crisis around the world.


Thank you for keeping your interest in our work,



MARÍA TRINIDAD BRETONES (Barcelona University)
