The journal Ecología Política invites authors to send article proposals for its next issue, n. 55.

The theme of the issue is Political Ecologies of India and South Asia 

It will include theoretical discussions and empirical explorations of socio-environmental transformations and conflicts in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and other countries, in relation to:

  • Extractive, marine, agrarian, forestry, hydroelectric, urban.. conflicts in the area.
  • Debates and contributions to Political Ecology from South Asia
  • Cultural expressions of environmentalist mobilisations.
  • The role of political and economic actors from this region in socio-environmental conflicts in other countries.

The issue will be published in June 2018.

Next issue (56) will cover Political Ecologies of China. We will open the reception of article proposals after June 1st, 2018.



Submission of articles will take place in two steps.

  1. Article proposal submission (250 words max.). Deadline: 31 January 2018.

Once received, the proposals will be evaluated by experts in the subject and by the issue’s guest editors. The authors whose proposals are selected will be invited to send a complete manuscript. Invitation to submit the full manuscript does not ensure its publication, as manuscripts will then undergo a further review process. Once the review process is completed, Ecología Política takes care of the translation to Spanish.

  1. Submission of the final version of the article (to be translated from English to Spanish, if necessary): 26 March 2018.

Both the abstracts and the final versions of the articles have to be sent to the following e-mail address:
