Special Note from the Editor,

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the sad news of Robert Elgie’s untimely passing this past July 14th. He was devoted to the journal and dedicated to scholarly excellence in the study of French politics, Comparative Politics and the discipline of Political Science in an international context. Since this tragic loss, I have agreed to be lead editor following the approval of the Associate Editors and Palgrave Macmillan. I had previously been an Associate Editor of the journal for the past 6 years.

The current lineup of Associate Editors and the Editorial Board will continue on with me for the next 2 years at which point we will decide if any leadership changes are necessary. As Robert had planned, the journal will be moving to an online submission system this Fall housed at Palgrave Macmillan. For publication and submission information go to the journal’s website at Specific editorial queries may be addressed to me at the new journal email at Palgrave at or at Please note: previous email addresses of the journal are no longer operating.

In 2020, the journal is planning on organizing memorial roundtables at major international conferences as well as a special issue anchored in Robert’s Elgie’s scholarly contributions. Please feel free to contact me directly with comments, questions, contributions or memories you would like to share with the community about Robert Elgie and his scholarly career and legacy.

I share with you the deep grief of this devastating loss.

All the best,

Amy G. Mazur (Washington State University)
