Information about the 41st issue of the journal "Pamięć i Sprawiedliwość" (submission of articles until 15 June 2022)

The central theme of the 41st issue of the semi-annual journal “Remembrance and Justice”, to be published in mid-2023, will be the widely understood relations of the European countries of the Soviet Bloc with the Global South during the Cold War.

The development of decolonisation of the so-called Third World countries, which took place after the end of the Second World War, involved the collapse of colonial empires and the emergence of dozens of new states on the world map. Its long-term effect was establishing a new international system, within which the Global South became the fundamental area of competition for influence and domination of the two Cold War powers and their allies - the United States and the Soviet Union.

In this issue, we want to take a closer look at the process of shaping relations between the Eastern Bloc and the Global South. We take an interest in a wide range of matters, especially those concerning

    Ideological and political ties

    Soft Power/ cultural diplomacy

    Economic relations

    Intelligence activities in the Global South

    Military expansion and contacts

The editors accept only texts that have not been published before and contain a new, original approach to the subject.

We publish articles in Polish and congress languages: English and French. The text volume limit is 50,000 characters for articles and source materials (including bibliography, abstract and keywords) and 30,000 characters for reviews and reports.
