Yes, you!

We’re always looking for new authors. CSPR is always looking to work with new writers from around the country and the world. If you’ve got an idea that will challenge our readers and provide them with insight, we want to hear about it.

CSPR provides students, academicians, and researchers active in social sciences especially the field of international relations, military warfare, geopolitics, foreign affairs, social movements, social problems and political uprisings with a forum to publish analysis on global geopolitical issues.
We cover a broad range of topics related to but not limited to our geographical region. We aim to gather perspectives from various intellectual minds, written in clear English that can be read with ease by the students of that field and experts as well.
CSPR invites authors and contributors willing to make original pieces of work concerning the themes we pursue with a regional as well as international geostrategic relevance.
Submissions can be in the form of opinion articles, situation reports, analysis, forecasts, interviews or editorials that aim to explain and foresee the trajectory of international geopolitics.
It is rewarding too. Hundreds of our team members (students, academicians and researchers of social sciences) will read your submissions, and in the process, you will also acquire a lot of knowledge—such as about the way you communicate your ideas, your writing style, and even about the subject you have focused your research on.
