Call for Papers: The 2012 Republican Primary and Presidential Election in the U.S.
In November 2012, American voters are called to the polls to elect the next U.S. President. While incumbent Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee, the race for the Republican nomination is wide open. The frontrunner of the Iowa Caucus was Mitt Romney, closely followed by Rick Santorum. Other candidates, such as Rick Perry, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich still have a chance in the race to become Republican nominee.
After Barack Obamaâ€™s rise and shine in the 2007 campaign, he has disappointed many and has not delivered on the majority of his campaign promises. The Young Transatlantic Conservative Alliance (YTCA) calls you to explore one of the following questions:
- Which Republican candidate is best to serve the transatlantic partnership?
- Which influence has the spatial reporting on the Republican nomination on the picture Europeans have of Republican candidates?
- What challenges will the next President have to take on in the transatlantic relations?
Length and scope of all papers is completely up to you. Please write all responses in English only! Please submit your articles by January 31, 2012 to email@example.com. Your papers will be reviewed the YTCAâ€™s editors and, if selected, will be published on our website. If you have any questions about the CfP, please contact Gerrit Kettel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
