The Journal of International Humanitarian Legal Studies invites contributions for Volume 10(2), which will be published in December 2019.

The Journal seeks to explore the application of international law to humanitarian crises and, more specifically, to examine the role that this legal framework plays in protecting human security during times of emergency.

Thus, the scope of the Journal is broad and covers:

  • the law of international and non-international armed conflict;
  • the protection of human rights during times of armed conflict and other public emergencies;
  • international refugee law;
  • military law;
  • disaster law;
  • the law of post-conflict reconstruction; and
  • international criminal law.

The Journal publishes full-length articles (8,000-10,000 words), short notes (such as comments and case notes of around 4,000 words), book reviews (500–1,500 words), and book review essays (2,000–4,000 words). The Journal welcomes contributions from academics and practitioners alike.

Contributions must adhere to the OSCOLA referencing style. For contributions to be considered for publication in Volume 10(2), they must be submitted no later than 30 June 2019.

The Journal will implement an online submission system in 2019. Meanwhile, please submit papers by emailing them to . Please send all proposals to review books to .
