In October last year, the institute welcomed leading scholars for its 2020 conference ‘Navigating North Africa: Dominating Narratives and New Perspectives’.

The conference explored a range of issues, including political Islam across North Africa, religious voices and peace in the region, and at the current trans-regional threats posed by terrorism, migration, and smuggling.

Now, the latest edition of Strife Journal builds on the conference by further exploring some of the themes tackled by scholars. The journal includes work by researchers on human rights, religion, politics, feminism and diplomacy.

Inga Kristina Trauthig, one of the organisers, said: “This special volume showcases the research of emerging scholars as well as established researchers from the region and the UK, with IMES continuing to include diverse voices in its activities.”

Strife is a biannual, peer-reviewed academic periodical publication created and managed by young researchers from the Department of War Studies at King’s College.
