Call for submissions: War and covid-19

en
es

In recent months, states around the world have had to respond to the unprecedented challenge of the covid-19 pandemic. In the next edition of The Broken Rifle, we want to explore the militarised aspects of this response, for example:

  • how have militarised practises been used to enforce lockdowns?
  • how has the discourse been militarised?
  • have armed forces used the pandemic as "cover" to extend their powers or reach?
  • how do our movements respond and change to this new context?

If you would like to contribute, we'd love to hear from you! Write to info@wri-irg.org with the subject "Contributing to Broken Rifle". Our deadline for initial submissions is 6th July.

A few practical details:

  • The Broken Rifle is the regular magazine of War Resisters' International, published three times a year
  • We look for contributions from around the world, with a different theme focus for each edition
  • Each article is normally around 1,200 words
  • Articles are normally translated into Spanish, French and German
  • We can accept contributions in a range of languages - let us know if you would like to write in a language other than English and we can normally arrange translation
  • You can see a guide to writing for WRI's publications here: https://wri-irg.org/en/Writing-for-WRI
