Behemoth – A Journal on Civilisation


The open access e-journal 'Behemoth' focuses on the general problem of the fading and/or failing state.

It aims at discussing notions of risk and order within societies where state institutions gradually lose or have already lost their integrative power. The journal is a forum for discussion of the approaches appropriate to analyse these new, contingent and sometimes even precarious regimes of (dis)order. Since 2014 the journal is hosted at the Open Journal System (OJS) of the University of Freiburg's Universtiy Library and published in cooperation with the Centre for Security and Society.
