As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in Religion and Politics is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series.

Brill Research Perspectives in Religion and Politics has two main goals. Firstly, it aims to provide a platform for the burgeoning scholarship on religion and politics that cannot find visibility within the constricted boundaries of either religious studies or political science. Secondly, it seeks to examine topics that are intensely debated in the public space from an objective, data-driven perspective. In doing so, it will offer alternatives to ideological or partisan positions particularly within hotly debated topics such as violence and politics, human rights, or democracy and secularism. In order to achieve these goals, the series will give priority to research that addresses contemporary debates on religion and politics in a particular national or regional context or in a comparative way across religions or political contexts.
From Volume 5 (2010), this title is published with Berghahn Books.

Individuals are eligible for free access to the International Journal of Parliamentary Studies until 31 December 2022, using access token PARL4U. Click here for more information.

The International Journal of Parliamentary Studies is a peer-reviewed international journal that provides a forum for academic research connected to legislative, procedural, political, comparative, and other matters related to parliaments at all governmental levels from all countries, including supranational (EU) matters. The journal analyses legislatures’ actors and activities, including their internal and external relations, from a theoretical, procedural, or practical point of view. The editors cultivate a strongly international author base and encourage contributions from the various fields of the legal and social sciences, thus seeking to offer a remedy to the specialization within and estrangement between these disciplines as well as to the distance between legislative theory and parliamentary practice.

Until recently, legislative issues, parliamentary procedure, and practice were exclusively the purview of national legislation and jurisdiction and were, therefore, issues for primarily domestic scholarship. However, a kind of parliamentary “ius gentium” or “ius commune” is evolving: Parliamentary activities are increasingly observed by international actors and repeatedly reviewed by international forums. Parliamentary issues are no longer matters of one institution or nation. There are points of contact between institutions and nations, and learning from one another is possible (e.g., regarding constitution and state building). Supranational parliaments (including the European Parliament) are gradually becoming important actors in world politics and policies.

The International Journal of Parliamentary Studies invites scholars of all levels of seniority and types of experience, from PhD students to professors and practitioners in parliamentary administrations, to submit papers on parliamentary issues, such as parliamentary functions, procedures, practice, the universal concepts of parliament (e.g., ministerial accountability, scrutiny, public engagement, separation of powers), democratic representation and elections, legislation, and constitutions. The journal welcomes the following types of submissions:

- Full-length article (5,000-10,000 words)
- Report: short presentations of data (e.g., on parliamentary sessions or elections) accompanied by analysis/evaluation (3,500-6,500 words)
- Case study: contributions from parliamentary organizations, presentations of court cases, internal parliamentary decisions related to parliamentary law (maximum of 5,000 words)
- Book review & conference review (maximum of 2,000 words)
- Forum article: academic reflections and debate on previous articles or reports (maximum of 5,000 words)

For editorial queries and proposals, please contact the International Journal of Parliamentary Studies Editorial Office.

For book review queries, please contact the book review editor, Attila Horváth.

The International Journal of Parliamentary Studies is published in cooperation with the National University of Public Service, Budapest.

Editor-in-Chief:
Populism is a peer-reviewed, international journal devoted to promoting transdisciplinary examination of populism in both historical and contemporary contexts. The journal’s fundamental premise is that, while there is currently no coherent frame of analysis, most experts do agree that populism is a complex and variegated phenomenon that should be examined from different theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches. Moreover, there is general agreement about its growing importance in the social sciences and about the rather obvious etymological fact that it is predicated upon the positing of an antagonistic relationship between two collective entities: ‘the people’ and ‘the elites’.

However, here is where scholarly consensus ends and disagreement comes to the fore. Some researchers prefer to approach populism as an ideology; others consider it as a mode of expression, a discursive style, a species of rhetoric, a political style, a type of political logic, or an exclusionary form of identity politics. Still others eschew such ideational and discursive approaches in favor of more policy-centered and organizational perspectives on populism as a political strategy, a strategy of political organization, or a political project of mobilization that also includes social movements. Put in an even more general framework, populism has also been referred to as a dimension of political culture. Although these different approaches are not necessarily mutually exclusive, they can be usefully associated with three distinct research paradigms identified by Gidron and Bonikowski (2013): (1) populism as political ideology; (2) populism as political style; and (3) populism as political strategy.

Populist currents have characterized many of the most pivotal events and developments in human history—often in times when established institutions lose their normative influence over individual and collective behavior. Aiming to serve as the premier forum for transdisciplinary research, the journal seeks to foster reflection on populism as one powerful way in which societies respond to rapid change in the social order. With that in mind, we also encourage contributions that discuss the impact of globalization on the transformation of the conventional ideological landscape in general and on populism in particular.

Populism invites scholarly yet accessible contributions that advance dialog in a way that resonates with academics, practitioners, policy-makers, and students as well as the general reader. The journal publishes standard articles (6,000-10,000 words recommended, but exceptions will be considered), research reports (up to 5,000 words), (single- or multi-) book reviews (up to 1,200 words), and interviews/conversations (not to exceed 2,500 words). Shorter articles, analyses, discussions, and commentaries are also welcome and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Normally, manuscripts should not exceed thirty pages in length. Submissions should conform to the Instructions for Authors, available below as a downloadable PDF.

Individuals are eligible for free access to Protest until 31 December 2022, using access token PROT4U. Click here for more information.

A “protest turn” is upon us. The Arab Spring uprisings, Occupy Wall Street, anti-immigrant mobilization, and Black Lives Matter – all speak to this historical juncture. Against this backdrop, Protest inaugurates a forum for capturing this expanding global phenomenon of contentious politics. To this end, it invites contributors to interpret the evolving nature of power and power dynamics and relations across various terrains of protest. Protest is neither single nor fixed, and the journal champions the diversity of ontology, epistemology, and methodology of knowing protest, undertaking to reflect it in the “writing” of protest. This dimension is intended to elicit new openings for inquiring more widely and globally into the protest turn.

The journal aims to:
• Parse the complexities of protest as they play out across time and space.
• Chart anti-systemic struggles by the indignants of the world – the faces of marginalization – in their bid to strike back at structures, forces, discourses, and relations of power.
• Understand emerging constructions and re-constructions of identity and peoplehood as well as negotiation of distribution and representation of power.
• Offer a platform that brings academic practitioners and activists in the field into conversation with one another.
• Narrativize the normative dimensions of protest as emancipatory activisms in pursuit of social justice and race, gender, environmental, and socio-economic rights, equality, and protections, etc.
• Create an international episteme around the topic of protest that probes cross-country, regional, and global patterns as well as local specificities.
• Interpret protest within dialectics of formal and informal (polity, economy, society, culture, language, etc.), local and global, academic and activist, politician and protestor, structure and agency, past and present, theoretical and empirical, text and context.
• Emphasize the different modes of knowledge-practices in which protest and its writing are embedded.

The travel of protest brings to the fore a plethora of questions about how activisms are imbricated in the lives of people, publics, communities, and ideas. How do the processes, actors, and milieus of change affect cities, peoples, and ideas, and vice-versa? How may protest interweave with revolution and transition? Interventions are geared towards investigating this angle.

Protest invites submissions that engage with the most recent theoretical, methodological, and empirical advances in the study of protest. As a single but multi-faceted scholarly forum, the journal serves as a platform that contributes to debates on “ruly” (top-down) and “unruly” (bottom-up) dynamics of change. The journal welcomes contributions about communities, people, ideas, institutions, and processes, all within the context of protest.

The journal welcomes the following types of submissions:
• Research articles: introducing empirical and/or theoretical explorations (7500-8500 words)
• Special Essays: commissioned from a seasoned figure (scholar, politician, activist, syndicalist, witness to a revolution, etc.) (5000-7500 words)
• Pedagogical Corner: section with articles on how to teach protest and offering resources for the classroom (2000-3000 words)
• Protest Voices: section geared especially towards reporting from voices in the Global South, with short articles written by protesters/activists in the field cataloguing and reflecting on their personal protest experiences (2000-3000 words)
• Reviews: short articles reviewing books, films, and cultural exhibitions and events (1500-2000 words)
• Interviews: one per issue with protest figures/organizers, be they public intellectuals, academicians, media personalities, or public figures, especially in relation to ongoing or live protests (2000-3000 words)
• Global Protest Spotter: section with submissions tracking/charting contemporaneous protest activity and protest “hot zones” around the world (may vary in length and will be assessed on an ad-hoc basis)
