Published by Sage Publications

Founded in 1837, World Affairs is a quarterly journal showcasing provocative and original research in international and current affairs. For decades it has been renowned for publishing articles on policy as it is practiced—pieces that excite controversy and encourage debate. As of 2016, World Affairs‘ longstanding tradition as a leader of political debate continues in its new and more academic incarnation.

Note: This 183-volume set is being released in phases over the next few months. Check back with us this summer to access the remainder of the archives!

Vol. 1 (2020)

Published by Brill Academic Publishers / Martinus Nijhoff Publishers

The aim of the Yearbook of International Disaster Law is to foster the interest of academics and practitioners on legal and institutional issues relevant to all forms of natural, technological/human-made disasters, including rapid and slow onset events, but excluding armed conflicts or political/financial crises per se. The Yearbook will primarily address the international law dimension of relevant topics, alongside important regional and national dimensions relevant for the further development of legal and policy initiatives. It fills a current gap in international journals as there is no a specific hub devoted to this area of law, notwithstanding the increasing academic interest towards such issues.
