Founded in 1962 under the auspices of the International Society for Military Law and the Law of War (the “Society”), the Military Law and the Law of War Review / Revue de Droit Militaire et de Droit de la Guerre (the “Review”) ranks among the oldest and most respected publications at the international level in the area of military/security law and the law of armed conflict. Initially entitled Revue de Droit Pénal Militaire et de Droit de la Guerre / Military Law and the Law of War Review, it changed to its current name in 1989.
The Review prides itself on serving as a leading forum for debate among legal scholars and practitioners, providing an outlet for high-quality publications on all aspects of military law and the law of armed conflict.
The Review is published by Edward Elgar Publishing, in partnership with the Belgian Centre for Military Law and the Law of War, with the support of the Belgian Ministry of Defence. It features original articles, case notes, commentaries on the latest legal developments, and book reviews. All manuscripts are subject to a rigorous process of peer review.
Over the past six decades of its existence, the Review has established itself a key source of analysis and information for civilian and military legal advisors, other practitioners, legal scholars and academics. It has a worldwide subscriber base across nearly 30 different countries.
True to its mission of serving as a ‘meeting point for jurists and experts’, the Review’s Editorial Board is composed of practitioners with a prominent academic background and scholars having a solid grasp of the operational dimension of their studies. This mix of theory and practice, one of the hallmarks of the Review, guarantees a pragmatic approach to the analysis of legal issues and the comprehensive coverage of the key legal developments in the field of military operations and military organization at the international level.
