Peace and Progress-Research Journal (PAP)


Peace and Progress (PAP) research journal is a blind peer-reviewed bi-annual journal.

PAP publishes research writings that seek to explain different aspects of South Asian politics. The Journal adopts a multi-method approach and publishes articles based on primary data in the qualitative and quantitative traditions, archival research, interpretation of texts and documents, and secondary data. The Journal covers a wide variety of sub-fields in politics, such as political ideas and thought in South Asian region, political institutions and processes, South Asian politics in a comparative perspective particularly with reference to Kashmir, Kashmir in world affairs, and public policies. While such a scope will make it accessible to a large number of readers, keeping Kashmir at the centre of the focus will make it target-specific.

PAP is a forum for those engaged in the pursuit of generating new knowledge and analyses of South Asian politics based on original research. By way of making such a knowledge and analyses accessible to the public, it will cater to the needs of a large number of social and political scientists engaged in teaching and research at educational and research institutions in Kashmir and abroad.

PAP expects readership mainly from academics and students (both post-graduate and research level) in higher education institutions and research institutes in Kashmir and abroad. We also expect a few interested journalists, NGO functionaries, political analysts and commentators and policy makers to read the journal.

The proposed journal will more generally cater to the needs of researchers and students in Political Science, Peace and Conflict Studies, Gender Studies, Law and Public Policy. Its emphasis will be on regional politics on Kashmir, Kashmiri politics, political thinking in South Asia and comparative politics of South Asia with Kashmir as the focus.

This journal is registered with ISSN: 2413-6123.
