The Journal of International Law and International Relations appears annually and publishes research articles, case comments, and book reviews. Submissions from academics, practitioners, and students are welcome. While we encourage and publish submissions from scholars based all over the world, all submissions must be in the English language.

The JILIR is a peer-reviewed publication. All articles and other submissions are anonymously reviewed by academics and graduate students in the relevant field. Editorial decisions at the journal are based upon peer reviews.
