European Journal of International Relations: UvA Editorial team takes over

28 November 2017

From 1 January 2018 a new editorial team from the University of Amsterdam will take over the editorship of the European Journal of International Relations, ranked globally among the top ‘all-round’ journals in International Relations and International Studies (journal IF 2.277; 5-year IF 2.702).

Not for the first time, members of the Department of Political Science were encouraged to apply for the position. The bid, with the active involvement of the AISSR and support of the Political Science Department, was accepted by the management board responsible for the journal and an agreement has been reached with the publisher Sage.

UvA editorial team

The editorial team consists of colleagues from across two AISSR research programmes (Transnational Configurations, Conflict and Governance; Political Economy and Transnational Governance):

  • Ursula Daxecker (conflict & security, methods), Associate Editor
  • Annette Freyberg-Inan (IR theory, methods, international political economy), Associate Editor
  • Marlies Glasius (international law, human rights, civil society), Associate Editor
  • Darshan Vigneswaran (migration, history/geopolitics, developing regions), Associate Editor
  • Geoffrey Underhill (international political economy, theory), Editor-in Chief and Associate Editor  

The respective expertise is both complementary and overlapping, particularly in the domains of theory and methods.

A flagship European journal with genuine global reach

The aim of the editors is to build directly on the accomplishments of the outgoing team at Sussex, shaping the content to fulfil in a balanced way the very broad founding mandate to cover the field that was integral to the journal from it’s beginnings in the 1990s. They aim for a flagship European journal with genuine global reach. The editors look forward to their stewardship of this important outlet for scholarly publishing with both enthusiasm and some trepidation in view of the new responsibilities. As a team they hope to represent the highest standards in terms of academic integrity and editorial practice.
