The Journal of International Organizations Studies is a new, peer-reviewed journal that seeks to encourage the creation of a distinct field of international organizations studies. It aims to provide a window into the state of the art in international organizations research, and function as a platform for interdisciplinary dialog on international organizations.

Volume 9, Issue 1

The Spring 2018 edition of JIOS is now available. It is the first published under the leadership of our new Editor-in-Chief Henry (Chip) Carey, succeeding Ken Stiles whom we wish to thank profusely for all the great work, level of professionalism and dedication that ensured the journal's continued success.

As Chip explains in his introductory letter, the current issue includes an impressive list of peer-reviewed research articles as well as a section on book reviews, now under the leadership of Christopher M. Jackson who we also welcome on board. In addition, the journal will from now on offer back issue materials, such as non-peer-reviewed editorials written by those who want to write shorter or less academic essays about international organizations. This time, it is a section on “New Developments of International Norms and Governance,” an edited compendium of excerpted public documents, mostly from the UN.

Please enjoy the reading and let us know your comments, suggestions, and questions!



We always welcome papers for submissions. We will soon start working on the Fall 2019 Edition.
