Letter from the Editor
Progress is wonderful medicine. After the headache caused by the mailing list in the summer, the establishment of a new SGIR website and the relaunch of the mailing list are indeed welcome. Details of the new SGIR website follow in the FYI section, but I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the subscribers to the mailing list for their patience and support during the collapse of the old list. Rob Mossop at ECPR Central Services also deserves a word of thanks for his quick action in stemming the tide, and helping us to pick up the pieces afterwards. The list has been checked and rechecked to ensure that the only person able to post to the list is me, the Editor. All attempts to send a message to the list will be automatically redirected to me, and not the list. We welcome items that are of interest to the list, and request that you send them to me. Further details regarding the Newsletter's new e-mail address, and the mailing list follow.

You will notice in this issue that we have received a publication notice of an International Relations text in Portuguese. The Newsletter welcomes such notices in national lanugages. We aim to reach the IR community in Europe, not just the English-speaking part of it.

Lastly, we wish to announce that Professor Osmo Apunen, of the University of Tampere, Finland, has finished his term of office as the SGIR Summer School Co-ordinator, having overseen three successful EIRSS sessions in Tampere, Grenoble and Jena. He also introduced the Virtual Summer School which successfully completed its first year this summer. His efforts in this regard are much appreciated by the Standing Group, and the Steering Committee in particular. The foundation he has laid for the succeeding Co-ordinator and the next three EIRSS sessions is invaluable. With the end of his term of office, Professor Apunen also ends his time as an ex-officio member of the Steering Committee of the SGIR. We would like to thank Professor Apunen for his service to the Standing Group.

Christopher Jones,
The Editor.

SGIR Steering Committee  
SGIR Steering Committee's Amsterdam Meeting  Extract from Summary Records, October 12th 2002
Note:  The summary records are provisional until approved at the next meeting.
Red text denotes a decision of the Standing Committee.

Present: Pierre Allan (Geneva); Eiki Berg (Tartu); James Davis (Munich, EJIR Associate Editor); Mervyn Frost (Canterbury); Caterina Garcia (Barcelona); Richard Higgott (Warwick); Christopher Jones (Huddinge, Newsletter Editor); Knud Erik Jørgensen (Aarhus); Olav F. Knudsen (Huddinge, Chair); Marina Lebedeva (MGIMO); Zuzana Lehmannova (Prague); Marjan Svetlicic (Ljubljana); Jaap de Wilde (Twente); Brigitte Vassort-Rousset (Grenoble).

Agenda Item: Opening of Meeting
Welcome to Amsterdam by Jaap de Wilde.
Agenda Item: Pan-European Conference 2004
Following lengthy discussion it was decided that:
The 2004 Conference will be held in The Hague at the Dutch Conference Centre, 9-11 September 2004;
There will be an ordinary rate and a student rate (rate to be decided);
There would be a needs-based lower rate for CEE faculty;
The Standing Group would conduct an active recruitment campaign in Central and Eastern Europe.
The choice of The Hague as the location for the Conference has 'symbolic significance' given the location of the International Criminal Court.
The Hague is 15-20 minutes from Amsterdam Schiphol airport, equidistant with Amsterdam. This means that accommodation could also be sought in Amsterdam, with a 30-minute journey to The Hague. This was felt to be a reasonable option.
Conference Programme
Richard Higgott has organised a Programme Committee at the University of Warwick, consisting of Ben Rosamond, Eleni Tsingou and Maja Zehfuss.
Section Chairs are to be encouraged to seek participants from Central and Eastern Europe.
The matter of plenary sessions was discussed, concentrating on the need for a good solid introduction to the Conference. Possible items are the International Criminal Court, EU enlargement in 2004, and the Dutch presidency of the EU.
The Call for Section Chairs is to be issued before the end of 2002. The Call for Papers will be extended in 2003.
Agenda Item: Nominations Committee for the next Chairperson
A committee with the broadest possible representation was proposed.
The Nominations Committee was confirmed as Helena Rytövuori-Apunen, Caterina Garcia and Ryszard Zieba.
Agenda Item: EJIR Journal Editor's Report
The number of new manuscripts and resubmissions has risen.
There is a much better male-female ratio than previously, including resubmissions as well as new submissions.
The EJIR's consistently high ranking in the Social Sciences Citation Index was commended.
In conclusion it was noted that 2004 would see 10 years of the EJIR, with the possibility of a section in the Conference devoted to the Journal.
The EJIR Editorial team were roundly congratulated for their sterling work.
Agenda Item: Newsletter Editor's Report
A proposal was circulated concerning the establishment of an independent website for the Standing Group, including the purchase of a domain name.
Working on the assumption that the Newsletter, International Studies in Europe, will not revert to a paper document, it is in the interest of stability and continuity, on the arrival of the next Newsletter Editor, that the Standing Group establish its own website. With the purchase of a domain name and storage space, this would be independent of any institutional affiliation on the part of the Editor. This would allow for the easy transfer of access and account details to the next Newsletter Editor, and ensure a stable and constant presence on the Internet.
It was proposed that all Standing Group 'electronic' activities, namely the Newsletter, the EIRSS, the Research Directory, and the 2004 Conference, come under this SGIR website. Thus the EIRSS, for example, would be free of institutional affiliation and retain a constant location on the Internet.
In preparation for the 2004 Conference, the SGIR website would offer online registration, and possibly online payment. The Newsletter Editor will investigate this option with the ECPR Central Services
The proposal to buy the domain and web storage space was approved.
The SC expressed its thanks to Chris Jones for the way he handles the editor and website functions.
Agenda Item: Summer School Business (EIRSS)
A proposal for the composition of the next Summer School Board of Directors had been circulated by the Chair in advance.
John Groom was proposed to head the Summer School at Canterbury 2003, as Andy Williams has stepped down for health reasons.
The Virtual Summer School pilot project has successfully completed 1 full year, concluding with a workshop in Gregynog, Wales. Given the lack of further financial means to sustain the programme for a full three years, it is proposed that the Standing Group suspend the course, as it is beyond the financial means of host institutions.
Questions were raised regarding the selection of topics and theme for the Summer School sessions. It was stated in response that topics and theme are based upon the availability of faculty members at the host institution. It should also be within the geographical context of the host. It was noted that the appeal of particular sessions seemed to vary according to geographical context. Attraction to potential students should thus be estimated in regional terms. It was noted that the EIRSS does not aspire to fill a specific intellectual 'hole' in the study of international relations in Europe, but that experience and attendance have shown that it is able to compete successfully with other European summer school offerings.
Accordingly, no concern was felt over the numbers in attendance at the EIRSS sessions. Attendance at the three previous sessions (15-20 students) was better than many other summer schools, and within the expectations and design of the EIRSS.
It was reported that the EIRSS has run its activities with no financial loss.
The Summer School Directors for 2003 and 2005 were approved (John Groom - Canterbury, and Helena Rytövuori-Apunen - Tampere, respectively). Otmar Höll has already been confirmed for the 2004 session.
The members of the Board of Directors were approved as proposed (Groom, Höll, Rytövuori-Apunen).
Helmut Hubel was approved as an additional member of the Board of Directors.
Brigitte Vassort-Rousset was confirmed as the next EIRSS Coordinator.
The Steering Committee approved its continued financial support to the EIRSS for a further 3 (three) years.
Agenda Item: State of finances
The Treasurer reported that the Standing Group's finances are in good shape.
Agenda Item: Any other business
The next meeting of the Steering Committee will be held in Tallinn, May 10, 2003.advance.

Following the conclusion of the meeting, the Steering Committee heard a stimulating and interesting presentation from Mr. Wellenstein of the Dutch Foreign Ministry on the International Criminal Court (ICC) located in The Hague.

Call for Papers  
International Conference on Intercultural Communication and Diplomacy
Malta, 20-23 February 2003

Final Call: Deadline November 22, 2002

DiploProjects began exploring the field of language and diplomacy three years ago. Since then we have hosted an international conference on language and diplomacy and published the proceedings, developed a language and diplomacy Internet portal and initiated an online discussion group on language and diplomacy. With this conference we begin research and discussion on the closely related topic of intercultural communication. With the help of participants from the diplomatic, academic and business communities we hope to uncover the interplay between diplomacy and intercultural communication; to learn what diplomacy can gain from and contribute to the field.

>> Call for papers
We are currently accepting proposals for conference presentations on any of the aspects of intercultural communication and diplomacy listed in the themes section of the conference website, or any other topic related to intercultural communication and diplomacy. Papers presented at the conference will eventually be published in a collection of conference proceedings. Please e-mail a 150 word abstract of your paper and a short biography, by November 22, 2002, to:

Hannah Slavik

Selections will be made at the end of November and all applicants will be notified by then.

International Norms for the 21st Century: Political Science, Philosophy, Law
International Symposium at Aix-en-Provence
September 11-14, 2003

Convenors: Klaus-Gerd Giesen, Universitaet Leipzig and Christian Joly, IEP d'Aix-en-Provence

Final Call: Deadline November 30, 2002

The international order has for foundations a number of basic norms that ensure its coherence and legitimacy. To fully comprehend international norms means in the first place to ask one-self some questions about the meaningfulness of these norms to the social actors (states, international organizations, transnational entities), and their justifiable grounds. The major challenge of the 21st century will be to generate for these questions novel responses, in a political and economic environment characterized by salient inequities and fast technological and ecological changes.

Political science can and must make its contribution because it looks at international norms in the light of an analysis of the structures and decision-making processes at the global level, also taking into account prevailing ideologies. Philosophy, particularly political ethics, explores the ideal world -the ethical norms- in contrast to the real world. Finally, international law evaluates the meaning and the legality of international judicial norms.

Given the wide scope of the upcoming challenges, the separate work of the academic disciplines becomes unproductive. The main purpose of this conference is to exchange ideas and create a synergism by blending the approaches of the different disciplines.

Location of the Conference: Institut d'Etudes Politiques, 25 rue Gaston de Saporta, 13625 Aix-en-Provence, France.
Working languages: French and English.

The number of participants will be limited. The participants will pay for all of their expenses and travel costs. However, no registration fee will be requested from them. The organizers will help the participants find local accommodations.

The papers will have to be sent by e-mail to the convenors by June 30, 2003. They will be passed out to all participants and posted on the internet homepage of the conference. The verbal presentations at the conference will be limited to 15 minutes and will be followed by a discussion by the participants who are supposed to read the papers before their arrival in Aix-en-Provence.

Papers proposals, including a title and an elaborate outline, are welcome and should be sent to the following e-mail address:

Journal of Conflict, Security and Development - call for papers and book reviews
The Journal of Conflict, Security and Development is now soliciting 6,000-8,000-word peer-reviewed papers and 1,500-word book reviews for future issues. Published three times per year by the Centre for Defence Studies at King's College London, the journal contains a combination of extended theoretical and conceptual articles, operational and regional case studies, and concise opinion pieces that establish connections between conflict and security-sector issues on the one hand and develop-ment matters on the other, in particular human rights and social development. Its target audience ranges from opinion shapers, research analysts and media representatives, to think tanks, inter-national organisations and government and academic departments that recognise the intellectual and policy challenges posed by the new security agenda. While a number of journals cover issues and themes relating to conflict, security and development, none are dedicated solely to examining the relationship between security policy and development and to bridging the related disciplines. Not only does Conflict, Security and Development fill this vacuum with fresh, objective and intellectually provocative research, but also it offers an inter-active forum for the cross-fertilisation of ideas and perspectives, and for reasoned and rigorous debate between members of the northern and southern hemispheres. Issue one, for example, contained the following works:

  • Security-sector reform: development breakthrough or institutional engineering? by Chris Smith
  • Democratic police reforms in war-torn states by Rachel Neild
  • Transforming security sectors: the IMF and World Bank approaches by Nicole Ball
  • Cambodia's security-sector reform: limits of a downsizing strategy by Dylan Hendrickson
  • Power and unaccountability in the Turkish security forces by Gareth Jenkins
  • The dynamics of Colombia's three-dimensional war by Marc Chernick
  • The Palestinian paradox: statehood, security and institutional reform by Yezid Sayigh
  • The strategic implications of HIV/AIDS in South Africa by Lindy Heinecken
  • A culture of secrecy: the public's right to know by Frances D'Souza
  • Secrecy and civil liberties in Latin America by Andres Fontana and Jorge Battaglino
Authors wishing to contribute to the journal should, in the first instance, submit a one-page abstract outlining the key arguments of the proposed article and its relevance to the focus of the publication. Those wishing to write a book review should contact the editor detailing the title, author and publisher. For more information, contact Richard Jones, editor, at or visit the Conflict, Security & Development Group web-site.

International Conference, December 13th - 15th, 2002
Evangelische Akademie Loccum, Hannover, Germany
Conference language: German and English

The fight against terrorism has moved to the very top of the international policy-making agenda today. It is becoming a primary project in a policy aimed at an order for the entire world.

  • Will all the other future-related questions that were intensively discussed at the world conferences of the 90s with the aim of resolving these fade into the background as a result?
  • Will the various efforts towards developing new structures and forms of political management in international politics not be continued in an open and forward-looking manner?
  • What parts of the important programme of setting up a comprehensive world order should be tackled in a concrete manner in the next few years?
The conference is planned and prepared in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Klaus Segbers, Free University Berlin.
Prof. Dr. Jörg Calließ, Chairman, Evangelische Akademie Loccum
Dr. Fritz Erich Anhelm, Academy Director

Nele procura integrar, "de forma interdisciplinar, as matérias da ciência do direito, das relações internacionais e da política, com o micro da técnica e do saber-fazer e o macro da procura da sabedoria, a que muitos dão o nome de filosofia", por acreditar que só assim se pode "aceder à complexa questão da globalização, da mundialização ou da planetarização". E opta claramente por um estudo integrado dos "vários discursos sobre o tema, bem como pela procura dos valores que mobilizam os indivíduos e os povos em torno de concepções do mundo e da vida ou de cosmovisões", ciente que está de que "não há ciência livre de valores".

New Publication: The Changing Politics of Foreign Policy

Published October 2002
Publisher: Palgrave

Author: Christopher Hill
Montague Burton Professor of International Relations, London School of Economics.

A major new introduction to, and interpretation and reassessment of, the nature of foreign policy in the light of changing political conditions, international and domestic. It argues that despite the forces of globalization foreign policy is an essential part of the life of any state and a focal point for both political agency and democratic accountability.

'This is a very creative, broad-ranging evaluation of the changing status and current state of foreign policy analysis. Provocative and insightful, it fills a major gap in the literature and should command a wide audience and much critical attention.' - Charles W.

Constitution, Choice and Change: Problems with the 'Logic of Appropriateness' and Its Use in Constructivist Theory
Ole Jacob Sending
  Institutional Breakdown and International Cooperation: The European Agreement to Recognize Croatia and Slovenia.
David Bearce

The debate between a moderate version of constructivist theory and rationalist theory centres primarily on the rationality of individual action. The article consists of an in-depth analysis of the 'logic of appropriateness' (LoA) invoked in constructivist theory. The analysis reveals that the LoA is a structural explanation and understanding of individual action. As such, it is untenable as a theory of individual action. The implications of this structural bias are discussed in relation to three core claims of constructivist theory. Moderate constructivist theory claims, first, that norms are constitutive for actors' identities. Second, it claims that agents and structures are mutually constitutive. Third, it claims that changes in ideational structures do occur and lead to changes in political practice. I conclude that the LoA is able to account for the first of these claims, but that by virtue of being able to account for this claim, it is, at the level of a theory of individual action, inconsistent with the second, and unable to effectively account for the third.
Using the logic of a two-phase cooperation framework (first bargaining to reach an agreement, then enforcement of the negotiated agreement), this paper examines how the risk of institutional breakdown can help promote international cooperation. I argue first that the risk of institutional breakdown can help promote bargaining cooperation by raising the opportunity costs of bargaining failure, thus providing a strong incentive for states who value the fragile international institution to negotiate a cooperative agreement. Having helped states to reach a cooperative bargain, the risk of institutional breakdown can also play a role in the subsequent enforcement phase. I argue second that the risk of valued institutional breakdown can reduce state preferences for defection, moving the enforcement problem away from the standard Prisoners' Dilemma structure. To illustrate these arguments, I examine the European Community's decision to recognize the breakaway Yugoslav republics of Croatia and Slovenia.
'A Democratic Critique of Cosmopolitan Democracy: Pragmatism from the Bottom-Up'
Molly Cochran
  Review Article: International Relations and World History
Martin Hall

This article begins by critically evaluating recent work on cosmopolitan democracy by David Held. I argue that where cosmopolitan democrats should now focus their energies is in filling a significant gap that Held's inquiries have left open: an exploration of what 'bottom-up' processes bring to cosmopolitan democracy, more specifically the work of problem-solving, publicity, and advocacy that takes place in sites that are referred to as international public spheres (IPSs). The next stage for the literature on cosmopolitan democracy must continue the work that James Bohman and John Dryzek have begun; that is, theorizing the role of bottom-up processes, in particular how IPSs and their members - individuals - work together in making their shared views authoritative in international decision-making. However, I argue that a pragmatist understanding of this key democratic concept, as opposed to the deliberative ones used by Bohman and Dryzek, is better suited to this endeavour.

Endogenizing Corporate Identities: The Next Step in Constructivist IR Theory
Lars-Erik Cederman/Christopher Daase
  (Un)Popular Strangers and Crises (Un)Bounded: Discourses of Sex-Trafficking, European Immigration and National Security Under Global Duress
Jacqueline Berman

In recent years, constructivists in International Relations have been attempting to 'seize the middle ground' between positivist objectivism and postmodernist relativism. Yet, while useful in rendering the approach more palatable to mainstream researchers, these efforts risk leading to premature ontological closure. We therefore propose that constructivist research be extended to a 'sociational' research agenda. Based on Georg Simmel's process theory of Vergesellschaftung, it joins contemporary constructivists on the epistemological middle ground while liberating itself from some of their ontological restrictions. The sociational perspective endogenizes the actors' corporate identities as a way to trace 'entity processes' such as the creation and dissolution of actors as well as boundary change. Such an analytical shift make it possible to imagine, and thus also to analyze, past, present and even future worlds constituted by co-evolving social formations, such as nations, ethnic groups, supranational organizations and states. We show how sociational analysis complements and surpasses conventional explanations of cooperation and conflict as applied to the democratic peace and ethnic conflict.
While the 'trafficking in persons' is a problem that has long plagued the international community, sensationalized media coverage and governmental anti-organized crime initiatives have produced a new set of discursive practices that conflate violent crime against women with complex forms of post-communist gendered migration. These discourses refer to many different forms of exploitation and migration as 'trafficking in women for purposes of sexual exploitation.' In other words, they portray all international, often illegal, migration and labour as acts of violated gender and raced innocence and of international organized crime. In this frame, criminalization of all activities related to trafficking appears to be the most logical and effective means of redressing this problem. It simultaneously, however, subjects all east European migrant sex workers to categorizations that defuse what may function as the challenges presented by their sovereign and symbolic boundary transgressions. A focus on crime and violated borders (rather than on the conditions under which women migrate or are forced to work), extends barriers to migration and renders it more dangerous for women while not necessarily hindering movement or assisting the genuine victims. Because it emphasizes the role of state-based institutions in fighting international organized crime, criminalization also serves as a means through which practices of 'statecraft' work to reiterate the privileged place of the state in IR. As such, discourses of sex-trafficking provide a particularly incisive site at which to examine European integration, immigration, 'globalization' and their effects on IR in a gendered and race-cognizant frame.
The 'English School' in China: A Travelogue of Ideas and Their Diffusion
Yongjin Zhang
  Review Article: The End of the Cold War: A Battle or Bridging Ground between Rational and Ideational Approaches to International Relations?
Margarita H. Petrova

Why does International Relations (IR) still remain 'a not so international discipline'? What promotes/constrains the diffusion of non-American ideas to national IR epistemic communities beyond the trans-Atlantic community as well as Europe? In this paper, I tell the story of how the English School (ES) as a non-mainstream approach to theorizing about IR has travelled to China. I examine the way in which the transmission of ideas associated with the ES has influenced the IR theoretical discourse in China to date. Borrowing insights from recent constructivist theorization on how norms and ideas diffuse, I offer sociologically informed explanations of how and why the American intellectual hegemony in IR has been reproduced in a national IR academic community. They suggest that the enduring dominance of the American scholarship in peripheral IR epistemic communities has less to do with either the power or the persuasiveness of ideas than with the American entrepreneurship in promoting international studies. The lessons learned from this story argue strongly for an additional agenda for the reconvened ES.

Research Training Network: Pre- and Post-doctoral researchers

Dynamics and Obstacles of European Governance
This Research Training Network, financed by the European Community, aims to provide young researchers with insights into the system of multi- level governance and to equip them with research tools, which could not easily be obtained within a national context. A network of seven Universities from the Netherlands (Maastricht), Denmark (Odense), Finland (Turku), Germany (Mannheim and Munich), UK (London) and the Czech Republic (Prague) will give them this opportunity. The network will provide training for young researchers in two ways:

The young researchers will:

  1. carry out their individual research projects and
  2. will attend a specific training programme.

This programme will give young researchers insights on concepts and theories of European integration governance and sound knowledge on quantitative and qualitative research methods. The teaching staff will assist scholars individually in their research projects.

The duration of the project is 36 months as of October 1, 2002 and runs until September 30, 2005. The deadline for application is December 13, 2002. Appointment is to be as soon as possible.

5 pre-doctoral and 2 post-doctoral researchers are to be appointed within this network.

This network is open to a young researcher who:

  • holds a doctoral degree or a degree within the Social Sciences obtained from a University or equivalent institution of higher education, which qualifies her/him to embark on a doctoral degree; and who
  • is a national of a Member State of the European Community or of an Associated State or residing in the Community for at least five years prior to her/his appointment within the framework of this network; and
  • is NOT a national of the state in which the participant's research team appointing her/him is located and he or she must not have carried out her/his normal activities in that state for more than 12 of the 24 months prior to the appointment;

In the case of national of a third country, she/he is not permitted to move to a host country in which she/he was residing for more than two years in the last five years immediately prior to the appointment date.

International Politics - Journal: Call for Editorial Team

International Politics, a peer-reviewed scholarly quarterly focused on transnational issues and global problems published by Kluwer Law International (New York & The Hague), seeks a new editorial team (Editor-in-Chief, Editor, Book Review Editor) to commence during the next academic year. Since 1996, Dr. Daniel N. Nelson (George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies) has served as Editor-in-Chief; Dr. Laura Neack (Miami University) has been Editor since 1998 and editorial offices are now located at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Nelson and Neack wish to ensure a smooth transition of editorial responsibilities during the academic year of 2002-2003, with a new team assuming these roles incrementally while the four issues for Volume 40 (for 2003) are assembled. The current co-editors of the journal's book review section, Drs. Marijke Breuning and John Ishiyama (both at Truman State University), also wish to transition from this responsibility in 2002-2003.

International Politics is now publishing Volume 39 (2002). The journal has a superb, truly international editorial board on which serve many prominent scholars of international relations as well as a number of senior policymakers and analysts:

Pierre Allan, Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na’im, Pauline Baker, Nicole Ball, Branko Caratan, Jiri Dienstbier, Susan Eckstein, Heinz Gartner, Leslie Holmes, Terry Hopmann, Robert Hunter, Shireen Hunter, Jo Husbands, Bob Hutchings, Geza Jeszenszky, Roger Kanet, Ali Karaosmanoglu, Olav Knudsen, Charles Kupchan, Ron Linden, Bill Maynes, Ali Mazrui, Karen Mingst, Chung-in Moon, Hideki Ohata, Ioan Mircea Pascu, Robert Pastor, Ann Sisson Runyan, Andrzej Rychard, Simon Serfaty, Marie-Claude Smouts, Dmitri Trenin, Richard Ullman and Thanos Veremis

In the past several years, International Politics has published important contributions to literature on contemporary political questions that transcend geographic and ideological limits such as regional integration, refugees, proliferation, privatization, NGOs and other new global actors, the diffusion of normative regimes, intervention and peacekeeping, the nexus between globalization and democracy, and an array of similarly transnational topics.

International Politics is produced and distributed by Kluwer. The journal is indexed and abstracted in CSA Worldwide Political Science Abstracts, Geobase/Geo Abstracts, the International Bibliography of the Social Sciences, International development Abstracts, International Political Science Abstracts, Political Science & Government Abstracts, and Sociological Abstracts. Kluwer assigns a production editor at its Norwell, MA offices to the journal, and the editorial team also works with Kluwer's New York City personnel (including its marketing director) regarding publicity. Kluwer Law International has, in the past, provided a modest annual fee to cover some graduate student work on the journal, plus expenses related to an editorial board meeting and reception at the annual International Studies Association conference.

The new editorial team need not be located at the same institution, although one of the editors' institutions should be prepared to offer an office, equipment, and student or other office assistance for management of the peer-review process. Likewise, a Book Review Editor (or editors) can be located at another university, as has been the case with the current editorial team.

Inquiries and expressions of interest in the editorships of International Politics should be made to either Daniel N. Nelson or Laura Neack at the email addresses or telephone numbers mentioned below.
