Law & Geoeconomics is a double-anonymous peer-reviewed journal that provides a platform for an emerging multi-/interdisciplinary scholarly community to rigorously analyze and debate the relationship between law and geoeconomics and its implications for world politics. The journal particularly welcomes manuscripts that explore: (A) the role of law in conditioning power politics by economic means; and (B) the role of such power politics in the formation, enforcement, and systematic variation of laws and norms that govern the global economy. The term “geoeconomics” has become increasingly popular in international relations (IR) scholarship to describe this type of power politics by economic means and the rapidly evolving transformation in the logic underpinning global economic relations. In recent years, diverse strands of literature have emerged and multiplied that all share an interest in these matters. Such scholarship is linked by recurring and conceptually overlapping terminology, including “economic statecraft”, “weaponized interdependence”, “economic diplomacy”, “economic security”, “economic warfare”, or simply “geoeconomics”.

The Editorial Board consists of distinguished scholars drawn widely from across the humanities and social sciences, and the journal’s remit is similarly pluralist, welcoming contributions from all theoretical and methodological approaches and from scholars working in or at the intersection of a diverse range of disciplines, including political science, law, international relations, economics, history, geography, and sociology. Law & Geoeconomics aims to be at the forefront of scholarly inquiry in this rapidly evolving area, promoting cutting-edge research that advances theoretical understanding, informs policy debates, and fosters dialogue and exchange across disciplines.

The journal will welcome the following types of submissions (in APA format) for double-anonymous external peer review:

Articles (maximum 12,000 words, inclusive of footnotes and references but excluding online appendices) that advance theory, concept formation, or empirical analysis.
Notes (maximum 6,000 words, inclusive of footnotes and references but excluding online appendices). Notes are shorter-form manuscripts that are less theoretically ambitious than Articles. Notes may introduce new datasets, provide a pithy empirical test of existing theory using new data, or replicate previous research findings using new methods that change underlying results.
Reviews. The journal publishes different types of reviews, which have their own word limits:
- Policy reviews (maximum 5,000 words) analyze recent policy developments and/or policy publications of government or non-government-affiliated research institutes and think tanks.
- Legal case notes (maximum 5,000 words) analyze recent judgments or arbitral awards.
- Book reviews can either appraise a single recent book-length scholarly publication (maximum 1,000 words), reappraise classic scholarly writings from a law and geoeconomics perspective (maximum 2,500 words), or review several scholarly books that are thematically linked (maximum 3,000 words).
