Palgrave Studies in International Relations

In association with the ECPR Standing Group on International Relations, Palgrave Macmillan is delighted to announce a new series dedicated to producing cutting-edge titles in International Relations. Palgrave Macmillan has been a publisher of outstanding scholarly work on international affairs since the inception of academic discipline of IR in the 1930s, with a list that includes many of the seminal thinkers. Palgrave Studies in International Relations will build on that tradition.

Edited by Knud Erik Jørgensen and Audie Klotz, Palgrave Studies in International Relations will provide students and scholars with the best theoretically-informed scholarship on the global issues of our time, in keeping with the ECPR Standing Group’s commitment to fostering dialogue in the discipline of IR. The series will comprise innovative and intellectually rigorous monographs and edited collections which bridge schools of thought and cross the boundaries of conventional fields of study.

The aim of the series is to present the best research in an accessible form, suitable both for researchers and graduate course-takers and tutors working in this broad and rapidly changing field. Prospective authors should submit their proposals to Amy Lankester-Owen at Palgrave:
