Journal of International Relations and Development

ISSN: 1408-6980 (Print) 1581-1980 (Online)


This independent, internationally peer-reviewed journal explores international relations and international political economy. It publishes articles on contemporary world politics and the global political economy from a variety of methodologies and approaches.

The Journal of International Relations and Development is a global publication with regional roots, which was established in 1984 to encourage scholarly publications by authors from Central and Eastern Europe. Today the journal welcomes submissions from all scholars without regard to regional affiliation. This is the official journal of the Central and East European International Studies Association (CEEISA).

The journal presents theoretically informed empirical analyses of current issues in international relations and international political economy, as well as original theoretical and conceptual analyses. Topics addressed in the journal reflect a global range of perspective.

Coverage extends to pro-market economic policies and women’s economic wellbeing; tactics of warlord democrats in Sierra Leone and Liberia; rhetorical strategies of securitization; international relations and Brazil; small arms control in Kosovo and Cambodia; and the Crimean crisis.

Also examined are the emergence of Earth jurisprudence in the Americas; the cyclical translation of international rule-of-law commission models in Guatemala; aid sanctions and political conditionality: continuity and change; and many other topics.
