    Special Issue on International Law


    International law is the set of rules generally regarded and accepted as binding in relations between states and between nations. It serves as a framework for the practice of stable and organized international relations. International law differs from state-based legal systems in that it is primarily applicable to countries rather than to private citizens. National law may become international law when treaties delegate national jurisdiction to supranational tribunals such as the European Court of Human Rights or the International Criminal Court. Treaties such as the Geneva Conventions may require national law to conform to respective parts.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on international law. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Customary international law
    • Rules and international relations
    • Territory and the sea
    • International crimes
    • International court
    • International law and economics
    • International property rights
    • Humanitarian law
    • Law issues in conflict and force
    • Global order

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – International Law” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
