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.

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.


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.[1] The name of the journal was changed to Security Dialogue in September 1992. Past editors-in-chief have been Magne Barth (1992–1996) and Pavel Baev (1995–2001), J. Peter Burgess (2001-2013) and Claudia Aradau (2013-2015).
