The European refugee crisis: organizational responses and communication strategies“. Editors: James Pamment (Lund U), Alina Dolea (Bucharest U), Diana Ingenhoff (Fribourg U).

Call for Papers

This special issue of the Journal of Communication Management seeks contributions that explore the contradictions emerging from an international actor’s urge to attract and the urge to repulse in conjunction with the refugee crisis. We are interested in studies that explore the relationship between public diplomacy, nation brands and the negative messaging targeted at migrants.

We particularly welcome in-depth analysis of the refugee crisis and the above mentioned related topics, and that explore new empirical and/or theoretical avenues for better understanding these issues. We also welcome studies that further a “communication management” perspective upon the topic, particularly if such insights can be of relevance to practitioner communities.

Manuscripts should be between 6000 and 8000 words length (see full author guidelines) and submitted via the journal’s website by February 28, 2017.
