The Mediterranean is a sea linking three continents, Africa, Asia and Europe, where major civilizations and three monotheistic religions have originated, and where cooperation and conflict have existed for millennia. Mediterranean Studies (ESDP-MeS) is a peer-reviewed book subseries that focuses on the region, its three subregions (North Africa, West Asia, and Southern Europe), and on the countries that cooperate within the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) and their political relations with outside partners. It addresses environmental, security, development and peace issues and six dyadic conceptual relationships among them: i) peace and security; ii) peace and environment; iii) development and security; iv) environment and development; v) development and security; and vi) environment and security.
Mediterranean Studies (ESDP-MeS) welcomes book proposals from scholars from the social and natural sciences from these countries or from those who are working on these four key themes in the Mediterranean region or in individual countries. This subseries includes original monographs, edited books (e.g. workshop or research reports), and outstanding academic qualification studies (PhD and MA/MSc theses). A key goal of this subseries is to give scholars from the global South more voice and visibility in the peer-reviewed literature.
All books in this subseries must be original and between 30,000 and 70,000 words. They are peer-reviewed and published as printed books in softcover and as Ebooks.
All members of the more than 4,500 academic institutions globally that subscribe to the relevant book package of SpringerLink will have free access to the Ebook and may obtain MyCopy.
