The main criterion is a judgment of the degree to which the submitted paper contributes substantial new research.

We only accept original, previously unpublished papers with scientific contributions are expected. Every Paper will be classified as original scientific Paper, professional Paper or review Paper. We expect high standards of scholarship within the Papers in terms of establishing the theoretical context, explaining the methods of inquiry, and reporting results that may aid other researchers. Papers may come from any country but must be written in English (Preferably American English). Authors are invited to classify their Papers according to the Conference theme. Submitted and accepted papers will be issued in the Conference proceedings. Every author can participate in up to two Papers (one as an author and one as a co-author). Apart from the Conference proceedings, a possibility will be offered for selected Papers to be published by In Statu Nascendi – Journal of Political Philosophy and International Relations. Papers for publication in journal/s should be modified or extended, according to the requirements of the journal/s, to avoid publication of identical Papers in two places (proceedings and journal/s).
