Journalists, students and academics from the Arab world are invited to submit their papers.

The Arab Council for the Social Sciences (ACSS) Beirut School of Critical Security Studies working group and Security in Context are seeking submissions about borders in light of COVID-19.

Possible topics include historical and critical readings of borders to help understand the current moment, what does the shutting down of borders imply for millions of workers, migrants and refugees who rely on border crossings for their survival, and more.

Submissions may have up to 2,500 words in English or Arabic.

Authors of papers selected for publication will receive a modest honorarium.

The deadline is Aug. 15.
