    Aims and Scope


    International Politics is a leading peer reviewed journal dedicated to transnational issues and global problems. It subscribes to no political or methodological identity, and welcomes any appropriate contributions designed to communicate findings and enhance dialogue.

    International Politics defines itself as critical in character, truly international in scope, and totally engaged with the central issues facing the world today. Taking as its point of departure the simple but essential notion that no one approach has all the answers, it aims to provide a global forum for a rapidly expanding community of scholars from across the range of academic disciplines.

    International Politics aims to encourage debate, controversy and reflection. Topics addressed within the journal include:

    • Rethinking the Clash of Civilizations
    • Myths of Westphalia
    • Holocaust and China
    • Leo Strauss and the Cold War
    • Justin Rosenberg and Globalisation Theory
    • Putin and the West
    • The USA Post-Bush
    • Can China Rise Peacefully?
    • Just Wars
    • Cuba, Castro and After
    • Gramsci and IR
    • Is America in Decline?

    Recent authors include: Steven Chan, John M. Owen, Judith Kelly, Andrew Linklater, Geir Lundestad, Francois Heisbourg, Chris Brown, Richard Higgott, Charles Kegley, Linda Weiss, Andrew Gamble, Alex Callinicos, Justin Rosenberg, Linda Miller, Jan Art Scholte, Benno Teschke, Bob Bremmer, Mary Kaldor, John Agnew, Roland Axtman and Hendrik Spruyt.
