Utrecht Journal of International and European Law – Second Volume General Issue 2023: The Utrecht Journal of International and European Law is issuing a Call for Papers to be published in the second volume of the General Issue in fall 2023 on ‘General Issues’ within international and European law.
The Board of Editors invites submissions addressing a topic of international and European law. Authors are invited to address questions and issues arising from the specific area of law relating to their topic. All types of manuscripts, from socio-legal to legal technical to comparative, will be considered for publication. However, please note that any analysis solely limited to a national legal system will fall outside the scope of the Journal. An international or European legal dimension is imperative.
The Board of Editors will select articles based on the quality of research and writing, diversity, and relevance of the topic. The novelty of the academic contribution is also an essential requirement. Prospective articles should be submitted online via https://utrechtjournal.org/about/submissions/ and should conform to the journal style guide on our website. The word limit is 10,000 words including footnotes. Submissions are due 10 September 2023. For more information, click here.
