Call for Papers: Journal of Global Analysis

The Journal of Global Analysis, a peer-reviewed online journal published by the UK-based Centre for Strategic Research and Analysis (CESRAN), welcomes submissions of articles on contemporary issues in international law for its Winter issue. The article should appeal to both professionals and a broad general audience.


The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2011.

Suggested Topics

The journal is interdisciplinary, so articles may have a better chance of acceptance if they also address one or more of the following areas in relation to international law: economics, human geography, international relations, political history, political science, and sociology.

Below I list a few ideas of possible topics, but feel free to come up with your own:

  • Inside the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement: Assessing the Balance of Trade
  • The Role and Rise of Regional Multilateral Legal Agreements
  • Corporate Social Responsibility: Does Its Voluntary Approach Promote “Social” Ends?
  • The Judicial and Social Function of Mediating Disputes Locally
  • Freedom to Vote: Transitional Democracies in the Middle East
  • Conflict, Security, and Development
  • Global Health Law and International Relations
  • International Law and Cybersecurity
  • Technology Transfer: Law, Policy, and Outcomes
  • Climate Change and the Threat to State Sovereignty of Island States

For additional ideas, it might be helpful to browse the current issue and archives.

Articles should be between 4,000 and 15,000 words and must be submitted in Microsoft Word format. For additional details, see Author Guidelines and Style Guidelines.
