The Journal of International Organizations Studies

UN the knotted gun

JIOS is a peer-reviewed journal that seeks to encourage the creation of a distinct field of international organizations studies. Since 2010, it provides a window into the current state of the art in international organizations research, and continues to function as a platform for interdisciplinary dialogue on international organizations.

It is published by the UN Studies Association.

Our next issue is out!
