First of all, Stuart Croft will step down from the Board. He was the co-editor of Contemporary Security Policy from 1991-2004 and has served on the Editorial Board ever since. He is now taking up the position of Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Warwick. While this is naturally a great loss for the journal, I would like to thank him for his tremendous contribution to the journal and to wish him all the best in his new position.
It is also time to welcome new colleagues. To guarantee the continuity of the journal, I have asked the outgoing editors Aaron and Regina Karp to continue to serve on the Editorial Board. They have kindly agreed. This will not only prove helpful during the transition. I am glad that their insight will remain available for the journal. Furthermore, to reflect the development of the journal in terms of its aims and scope, I have invited eight new colleagues to join the Editorial Board. These are highly qualified scholars, from a variety of countries, who bring along exciting new expertise. Many of them are from the new generation; all of them share a commitment to high quality publishing in peer-reviewed journals. They are also dedicated in terms of policy impact and outreach.
The new colleagues on the Editorial Board are:
- Malte Brosig (University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa)
- Toni Haastrup (University of Kent, UK)
- John Karlsrud (Norwegian Institute of International Affairs, Norway)
- Aaron Karp (Old Dominion University, US)
- Regina Karp (Old Dominion University, US)
- Sarah Kreps (Cornell University, US)
- Nicola Leveringhaus (University of Sheffield, UK)
- Maria Mälksoo (University of Tartu, Estonia)
- Annemarie Peen Rodt (Royal Danish Defence College, Denmark)
- Michael E. Smith (University of Aberdeen, UK)
The Editorial Board will continue to be updated in the future to reflect the aims and scope of the journal as well as developments in the academic discipline.
