The Ideology and Politics Journal aims to develop an interdisciplinary platform for debates of informed and non-partisan researchers in the fields of social philosophy, political science, sociology, political economy, intellectual history and cultural studies.  Devoted to the advancement of understanding of socio-political processes in post-Soviet Belarus, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine, it deals with the ideological and intellectual issues arising in the course of formation of new societies.  Authors in IPJ explore how these societies acknowledge new socio-economic reality, change of values and guiding ideas for new political institutes.  They also consider how emerged societies represent themselves and their pasts, as well as how they project their futures. IPJ offers to its readers theoretical, as well as empirical works that are of interest beyond the narrow circles of academicians.

The Ideology and Politics Journal is dedicated to the analysis of ideologies in its political, social and conceptual forms.  We recognise complexity and vagueness of the concept of ideology.  To address this complexity, IPJ focuses its publications to the broadly defined manifestations of ideologies, including:

  • political ideologies, culture and discourse
  • phenomena of power
  • epistemological issues of truth, values, legitimacy and institualisation
  • domination, exploitation and solidarity
  • recognition issues
  • collective identities and memories
  • ideological traditions and innovations

Founded by the Foundation for Good Politics (FGP), the Ideology and Politics Journal encourages discussion of the historical, cultural and ethical dimensions of political action, with the intention to contribute to both the advancement of interdisciplinary research of contemporary ideologies, and the promotion of a good politics in countries of the region.

The Ideology and Politics Journal is issued one or two times a year.  The Journal is published in electronic form. All publications are free of charge. All reviews of the submitted texts are free of charge.

To enhance international dialogue, IPJ accepts the submission of articles in languages of the region and English to publish them in original language with abstracts in English, Russian and Ukrainian.
