The Cyprus Review invites submissions for its upcoming 2020 Special Issue on

COVID-19 in Doctrinal Context: Analysing, Theorising, and Surpassing the Pandemic Crisis

[Available here in .pdf format]

Responding to the ongoing planetary crisis due to the spread of the COVID-19, The Cyprus Review opens the present call to all interested academics, scholars, and practitioners who are willing to contribute to the ongoing scientific debate about the foundational questions raised by the pandemic, the threats, challenges, and possibly opportunities created, and the doctrinal assessment of the systemic responses provided vis-à-vis this latest predicament.

The Review invites all interested authors to consider submitting original contributions primarily in the fields of International Relations, Politics, Social Welfare, History, Public Administration, Law, Sociology, Anthropology, Social Sciences, Economic, and Life and Health Sciences, critically approaching the pandemic crisis in theoretic or practical milieu. It should be pointed out that the contributions must be, at the broadest possible sense, pertinent to Cyprus in order to be considered for publication.

Following below is a highly indicative list of topics:

  • COVID-19 and the world order
  • Law and society in the context of the pandemic
  • Social distancing and the social science
  • Human rights in the COVID-19 era
  • Legal, social, and political notions of the State of Exception
  • Biopolitics, necropolitics and State regulation during the crisis
  • International organisation and international crisis management
  • Humanity, solidarity, and sociability in the times of COVID-19
  • EU policies and the pandemic
  • Economic, commercial, and financial aspects of the crisis
  • Poverty, social exclusion, and the Welfare State during the pandemic
  • COVID-19 and the environment
  • Spatial and temporal aspects of the pandemic crisis
  • Legal and political dimension of the preventive policies implemented
  • Threats, challenges, and opportunities for scientific debate in the times of the pandemic

This is not an exclusive list. On the contrary, we urge prospective authors to think out of the box, endorse bold new ideas, and research the various aspects the current crisis. Articles should have a relevance to the case of Cyprus, thus enhancing Cyprological studies and research.
