The Editorial Board of the Cambridge International Law Journal is pleased to invite submissions for Volume 12 (issues to be published in June and December 2023).

The Board welcomes articles (6,000–12,000 words, inclusive of footnotes) and case notes that engage with current themes in international law, as well as book reviews on recently published works.

Volume 12 Issue 1 will include a special section on ‘Global Security Challenges and International Law’, in collaboration with the European Society of International Law’s Interest Group on International Economic Law. Security threats, both persisting and emerging, are increasingly the subject of international concern: whether and how international law can effectively address these challenges is a matter of utmost importance. At the same time, the question of which issues are deemed security threats is itself open to scrutiny. We invite contributions on this theme, in addition to contributions to the general section.

All submissions are subject to double-blind peer review by the Journal’s Editorial Board. In addition, long articles are sent to the Academic Review Board, which consists of distinguished international law scholars and practitioners. Submissions can be made at any time. Articles submitted by 30 October 2022 will be considered for Volume 12 Issue 1.
