Security Dialogue is a peer-reviewed academic journal that publishes scholarly articles which combine contemporary theoretical analysis with challenges to public policy across a wide-ranging field of security studies. The journal is owned by the Peace Research Institute Oslo which also hosts the editorial office. As of 1 October 2015 Mark B. Salter (University of Ottawa) is the editor-in-chief. Marit Moe-Pryce has been the Managing Editor of the journal since 2004. Current Associate Editors are Marieke de Goede (University of Amsterdam), Emily Gilbert (University of Toronto), Jairus V. Grove (University of Hawaii at Manoa), Jana Hönke (University of Groningen), Doerthe Rosenow (Oxford Brookes) Anna Stavrianakis (University of Sussex), and Maria Stern (University of Gothenburg).[1]

Security Dialogue went through a significant change in scope under the editorship of J. Peter Burgess, and this has seen the journal climbing on international rankings to become one of the leading journals in Critical Security Studies. In addition to the flagship journal of Critical security studies, Security Dialogue also runs a blog[2] and podcast series.[3]

History[edit]

The journal was established by Marek Thee in 1970 under the name Bulletin of Peace Proposals. The aim was to systematically present, compare and discuss ideas, plans, and proposals for development, justice, and peace.[4] The name of the journal was changed to Security Dialogue in September 1992. In the editorial introduction to the new journal title, then-editor Magne Barthe called for inter-regional dialogue on security issues, and for an internationalization of both scope and dissemination.[5]

Critical Approaches to Security in Europe[edit]

One of the most-cited articles published in Security Dialogue is the manifesto of the c.a.s.e. collective, which outlined the recent history of critical security studies in Europe and suggested directions forward.[6] The c.a.s.e. collective article traced the development of the different "schools" of European critical security studies from a sociological perspective, and was written by a group of junior and senior scholars, including: Claudia Aradau, Didier Bigo, Matti Jutila, Tara McCormack, Ole Wæver, and Michael C. Williams. [6] Then-editor J. Peter Burgess recognized the controversy caused by the c.a.s.e. collective approach,[7] and Security Dialogue published a series of replies to the c.a.s.e. collective article by R. B. J. Walker,[8] Andreas Behnke,[9] Mark B. Salter,[10] and Christine Sylvester[11] in response to the manifesto, as well as a response to the critics written again by the c.a.s.e. collective.[12]
