    Special Issue on Might versus Right


    We all things might doesn’t make right. Yet if states are legitimate, it looks as though one would have to say that it does, somehow, or at least somewhat. The origins of most states, for example, include plenty of conquest and domination. What if anything is the significance of that? The goal of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for scientists worldwide to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of might versus right.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring might versus right.


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Might versus Right” should be selected during your submission.
