PARTECIPAZIONE E CONFLITTO [Participation and Conflict, PACO] 

* The Open Journal of Sociopolitical Studies * started in 2014 and all issues are available in
electronic and open access version.

PACO was born in 2008 by the initiative of a network of scholars of social
movements and political participation based in different Italian
Universities.

In a few years It has become a benchmark for a wide European network of
scholars in sociology and political science.

Since its foundation the Journal was published in Italian (sporadically in
Spanish and English, too), but starting from 2014, the Editorial Team
decided to publish it in English on an electronic and open access
platform, to make research results freely available to the scientific
community.

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.

PACO emphasizes innovative studies and research of high methodological
rigor, treasuring of the most recent theoretical and empirical
contributions in social and political sciences.

AFTER A RIGOROUS DOUBLE BLIND PEER REVIEW PROCESS, PUBLICATION IN PACO IS
FREE OF CHARGE.
