PArtecipazione e COnflitto [PArticipation and COnflict] is an International Journal based in Italy specialized in social and political studies.
PACO houses research and studies on the transformations of politics and its key players (political parties, interest groups, social movements, associations, unions, etc.), focusing in particular on the dynamics of participation both by individuals acting in conventional ways, and by those who prefer protest-oriented repertoires of action.
Special attention is also paid to the dynamics of transformation of contemporary political systems, with an eye fixed on the processes of democratization besides on the spaces opening to the new forms of governance both at local and sub-national, and supra-national level.
All are inscribed in that complex phenomenon represented by the trans-nationalization of social, political and economic processes, without neglecting the nation-state dimension.
The journal emphasizes innovative studies and research of high methodological rigor, treasuring of the most recent theoretical and empirical contributions in social and political sciences.
The NEW SERIES of PARTECIPAZIONE E CONFLITTO starts in 2014. Every issue is published in English, available in electronic and open access version.

FOR GIULIO REGENI ...
As members of the editorial committee of PARTECIPAZIONE E CONFLITTO (Participation and Conflict), the foremost Italian academic journal dedicated to publishing scholarship concerning many of the research questions that Giulio followed, we join the mourning and profound pain that has shaken your lives, and express our deepest and most sincere condolences and solidarity.
This grief has effected the entire academic community, given that Giulio was working to produce highly relevant research within a field essential to our collective understanding of the evolution of political regimes in areas where diverse traditions and stories meet. Giulio’s loss undermines trust with respect to universities. For those working for universities, the possibility to develop research to its full potential has been threatened, and with it the entire premise of the quest for knowledge that universities are founded upon.
We trust that our authorities will take all the steps necessary to safeguard and protect all academics, and in particular doctoral researchers, who are more often engaged in empirical research work on the ground, outside their institutions, and often in challenging areas of the world that necessitate increased protective measures.PACO Editorial Board
