The Journal of Peace and Security Studies (JPSS) is a peer-reviewed electronic and print journal, published by the Institute of Peace and Strategic Studies (IPSS) of Gulu University, Uganda. The Journal reflects the multi-disciplinary focus of the Institute and publishes articles in the social sciences and humanities, broadly defined to include anthropology, sociology, political science, history, psychology, law, conflict and peace studies, religious studies and environmental studies. Articles that cut across disciplinary boundaries are particularly welcome. Uganda is a key regional focus for the Journal, but contributions from the whole East African region and beyond are encouraged as well. JPSS is published periodically. Volumes/numbers devoted to specific topics and edited by invited guests alternate with miscellaneous volumes/numbers.
