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.

Special issue on extraterritoriality!

We are pleased to present to you our special JIOS issue on the issue of extraterritoriality!

Silviana Cocan analyses the development of judicial dialogue in the international legal order, its role in extraterritorial governance and its interactions with the political context that influences the effective implementation of human rights in domestic legal orders. Attila Nagy compares how UNMIK (United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo) and EULEX (European Union Rule of law Mission in Kosovo) have each dealt with the issue of extra-territorial governance in Kosovo, and the need for authority in conflict resolution and legal decision enforcement in particular. Wenjun Yan and Lin Shang discuss when and how China shall exercise its extraterritorial jurisdiction when it comes to forcibly displaced persons. Irene Vázquez Serrano explains how the aut dedere aut iudicare principle is one of the means through which the universal principle can be expressed, and, therefore, why both principles should not be confused although they have a common goal (the fight against impunity).
