International Relationsis explicitly pluralist in outlook. Editorial policy favours variety in both subject-matter and method, at a time when so many academic journals are increasingly specialised in scope, and sectarian in approach. We welcome articles or proposals from all perspectives and on all subjects pertaining to international relations: law, economics, ethics, strategy, philosophy, culture, environment, and so on, in addition to more mainstream conceptual work and policy analysis. We believe that such pluralism is in great demand by the academic and policy communities and the interested public.
We welcome articles or proposals on all topics of interest to students of world politics. Each volume will normally contain peer-reviewed research articles, and a mixture of review essays, interviews, debates and forums. Special issues will be published, and we welcome ideas.
