The second issue of JSR&P will focus on ’National, Regional and Global Identities: Trends and Intertwinings’.
In today’s societies, the national, regional and global identities are complexly entwined. Attitudes and attachments to nations, regions and world as a whole are often ambivalent and strong conceptual dichotomies such as nationalism-cosmopolitanism are not always supported by the existing data. Moreover, a clear theoretical model of supra-individual identities is not yet attained. As a result, the forecasts of the developments in national-global attachments are contradictory, ranging from the prediction that intergenerational change will bring an increase in support for regional and global entities to the opposite prophecy that nationalism will be perpetuated, given the active involvement of political actors from majorities and minorities. This special issue of Journal of Social Policy and Research will harbor theoretical and research-based inquiries focused on the development of all these supra-individual identities and on the relationships between them. We encourage the submission of multidisciplinary approaches and also of those articles that take into account local and regional peculiarities
and draw policy recommendations
. Articles that deal with the multiple facets of identities in the social, economical and political context are nonetheless welcomed.
Deadline for submitting articles for this issue is September 15th 2010. Articles have to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
