Comparative Southeast European Studies

The new format of quarterly Comparative Southeast European Studies (COMPSEES) evolved from the journal’s predecessor Südosteuropa. Journal of Politics and Society. From 2021 onwards, it has been published both digitally, in open access, and in print, thereby making it more easily accessible and even more visible internationally, as well as in Southeast Europe itself. The digital repository of Südosteuropa can also still be accessed by interested parties.

Like its predecessor, Comparative Southeast European Studies is a forum for scholars from Political Science, Sociology, Contemporary History, Anthropology, Economics, International Relations, Law Studies, Gender Studies, Media Studies, Cultural Studies, and related disciplines. Taking a comparative and broad multidisciplinary perspective, it explores critical processes and societal issues related to the area bounded by the eastern Adriatic, the eastern Mediterranean, and the Black Sea. The journal uses two formats to showcase research, combining peer-reviewed research articles with a shorter format for other text genres. The latter are presented under headings such as “Commentary”, “Interview”, “Background”, “Policy Analysis”, “Film in Focus”, “Debate”, “Spotlight”, “Book Symposium”, “Living Memories”, and “The Making of...”. The flexibility of this section allows us to address more topical political, social, cultural, and academic matters. The journal also features a book review section.

We welcome both individual manuscript submissions and proposals for guest-edited thematic sections. We very much look forward to working with you.
