Submissions are welcome for the new Berghahn Books’ series “Humanitarianism and Security”:

Amid the growing convergence between the politics of aid and policing, emergency and military governance, securitization and the production of collective fear, this series examines humanitarianism and security as both ideology and practice. To this end, it offers ethnographic and theoretical analyses that contribute to the development of critical approaches at the intersection of anthropology, sociology, geography, international relations, and other disciplines.



Formal submissions should be sent directly to Berghahn Books:

However, initial enquiries are encouraged and should be sent to Antonio De Lauri, Senior Researcher at CMI and affiliated with NCHS (, who will be able to advise and help you through the formal procedure.
