About the Journal



Since February 24th 2022, the global mediatic and political attention is focused in Ukraine. The Russian attack started a war in which both countries are still involved. This conflict, in which NATO members are supporting Ukraine, represents the main step of a new Russian expansionism (Zubok, 2023).

However, Vladimir Putin’s plans are not new (Grigas, 2016). Russian-speaking regions of Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine have been in conflict since 2014, and it seems that this is not the only objective in the Russian’s president's ideas (Atlantic Council, 2022). Considering the situation, Russia is nowadays in the eye of international relations and international media, as this conflict seems to build a New Iron Curtain in the world (Marcau, 2022). 

Tripodos issue 56 aims to delve into the past, present and future of the global situation looking at this new Russian neo-imperialism through the lens of communication but also through a deep international relations’ analysis. For this reason, we invite scholars working in the areas of international politics, conflict analysis, conflict narratives, journalism, digital media, to send their manuscripts. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Putin’s geostrategy
  • Narratives about the Russia-Ukraine conflict
  • Reporting on the War: coverage analysis
  • The New Cold War
  • Censorship and freedom of press in Russia
  • Historical evolution of the Russian geostrategy since the collapse of the USSR
