Stability helps to connect policymakers, practitioners, academics and others with timely, open-access and peer-reviewed research on a wide range of issues related to stabilisation, peacekeeping, state building, crime and violence prevention, development cooperation and humanitarian action. All articles, commentaries and practice notes published with Stability are freely accessible without subscriptions, and our team works with authors to disseminate their work across our extensive policy and practice networks.
Stability not only features evidence-based research and analysis but also promotes a more timely and responsive model of publishing – one which ensures that individuals in violence-affected and transitional contexts have an opportunity not only to read our content but also to submit articles for consideration by our expert pool of peer reviewers.
