International in scope, critical in character, and thoroughly engaged with the most pressing issues confronting international society today, International Politics is founded on the essential proposition that no single approach to the practice of international politics offers all the answers. IP is thus methodologically pluralist and interdisciplinary in nature.
As a trail-blazing, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to exploring transnational issues and global problems, International Politics espouses no specific political or methodological stance, the journal welcomes appropriate contributions that communicate findings and provoke deeper dialogue amongst scholars studying international relations.
Recent topics discussed in the journal are the relationship between Putin and the West; China’s chances to prosper peacefully; the concept of just war; contemporary Cuba; the America in decline debate; rivalry in South Asia, the English School, Great Powers in IR; British IR in retrospective Coverage, international human rights, and the nuclear question.
International Politics is known for offering a series of regular special issues focused on one specific topic. The Editorial Team welcomes email inquiries from prospective guest editors. Such inquiries should outline the scope of the special issue, as well as a list of articles (with titles) and authors. In particular, papers coming out of workshops and/or conference proceedings are encouraged.
The journal is designed to provide a global forum for a burgeoning community of scholars from across the range of academic disciplines.
International Politics is edited in-house at NYU's Program in International Relations. The editor-in-chief is Professor Michael John Williams. The Managing Editor is Ivana Jordanovska.
