Austrian Review of International and European Law – ARIEL
The Austrian Review of International and European Law (ARIEL) is an annual peer-reviewed publication that provides a scholarly forum to discuss issues of public international law and European law, with particular emphasis on topics being of special interest to Austria. It focuses on theoretical as well as practical questions and current developments in all areas of public international and European law. Apart from a digest of Austrian Practice in international law, encompassing pertinent judicial decisions, executive as well as parliamentary documents, each volume contains both longer analytical articles, as well as shorter notes dealing with current developments.
The editors invite all interested persons to submit contributions for volume 25 (2020) of the ARIEL. This issue will be dedicated to the shifting landscape of and current challenges arising for multilateralism in international organizations. Potential topics might include the role of small states in international organizations, an analysis of the impacts of COVID-19 on working methods, the rise of new international actors in the Global South, the increase in inter-organizational cooperation (e.g. UN-AU, EU-NATO), the withdrawal from pertinent multilateral agreements, as well as questions of law-making and accountability.
Submissions will be examined on their academic relevance and undergo an independent double-blind peer-review process, conducted by scholars and practitioners of public international and European law.
Submissions for analytical articles should be 8,000-12,500 words in length, including footnotes. Submission for notes on current developments should be 6,000-8,000 words in length, including footnotes.
