UNEINS is a young magazine that sets new impulses on peace and conflicts with critical and progressive voices, initiates new debates and diversifies existing discourses. The magazine thus opens up the links between socio-political debates, peace and conflicts to a broad interested audience. As a print magazine, it is intended to be published two to four times a year and will consist of a variety of contributions: From academic articles, journalistic pieces and essays, to photography, illustration, poetry and literature.

UNEINS aims to explore new paths in the production of knowledge. Knowledge is created by networks, through mutual inspiration and contradiction, by referring to one another. Through transparency and participation, we want to reflect on old hierarchies and power relations in knowledge production and work together on ways to overcome them.

UNEINS seeks to set topics autonomously and is completely relying on you for 'the big picture'. We would like to invite you as practitioners, thinkers, activists, artists, students and PhD candidates to participate with contributions, but also with feedback and recommendations. We will enter into a participatory editing process with the authors of the contributions that will find their way into the issue. This means that we meet as eye-to-eye partners and understand the work as a joint learning process in which we find mutual inspiration, but also establish an honest feedback culture.

UNEINS remains uneins (divided). There is no conventional right and wrong here. Whether it is a finished work or just a thought calling to be pondered further - only to end up in a dead end or to turn thinking about peace and conflict upside down. Your posts ask the wrong questions at the right time. Or the other way around. Join us in becoming space invaders!
