Security Dialogue is a fully peer-reviewed and highly ranked international bi-monthly journal that seeks to combine contemporary theoretical analysis with challenges to public policy across a wide ranging field of security studies. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Security Dialogue seeks to revisit and recast the concept of security through new approaches and methodologies. It encourages ground-breaking reflection on new and traditional security issues such as globalization, nationalism, ethnic conflict and civil war, information technology, biological and chemical warfare, resource conflicts, pandemics, global terrorism, non-state actors and environmental and human security.
Security Dialogue promotes analysis of the normative dimensions of security, theoretical and practical aspects of identity and identity-based conflict, gender aspects of security and critical security studies.

Security Dialogue aims to combine cutting-edge advances in theory with new empirical findings across a range of fields relevant to the study of security. The journal provides an outlet for new approaches and methodologies from disciplines such as gender studies, political sociology, political economy, political theory, international relations, religious studies, visual arts, anthropology, psychoanalysis and political philosophy.
Security Dialogue encourages innovative analyses that challenge traditional readings of, inter alia, subjectivity, gender, identity, the individual, the social, the international, the economical, citizenship, health and biopolitics, risk, information technology, globalisation, migration and transnationalism, terrorism, crime, and media.
Security Dialogue represents a unique forum across the arts, humanities and social sciences for scholarship that seeks to revisit, critique, and revise the concept of security against the backdrop of contemporary and historical developments.
