Taking a national, comparative, or international perspective, Brill Research Perspectives in Family Law in a Global Society publishes long review articles addressing specific issues found in case law and statutory law that have an impact on the formation, maintenance, and termination of family relationships. At a time when family law has undergone a major transformation in most of the countries in the world, this publication fulfills the function of providing academics, practitioners, and policy-makers worldwide with information regarding the changes that have occurred and the approaches being taken in specific countries toward particular family law doctrines.

As more and more individuals move from one country to the next either by choice or by necessity and form new family relationships with persons from other countries and cultures, there is a need for an understanding of the possible conflicts in family law that will govern their new relationships. This publication meets that need.

Brill Research Perspectives in International Water Law is a hybrid journal and reference publication for research output on shared freshwater resources. Population growth, economic activities, environmental degradation, and climate change have exacerbated competition and ignited disputes over water resources (both surface water and groundwater) shared by two or more states. The entry into force of the United Nations Watercourses Convention has refocused the attention of the world community on shared water resources and underscored the pressing need for their equitable and sustainable sharing, inclusive and proper management, and environmental protection.

Each issue comprises a single, uniquely focused monograph that explores these aspects and addresses international, regional, and bilateral agreements and arrangements as well as thematic matters related to shared water resources. The journal’s target contributors and readers include international water law professors, researchers, practitioners, and graduate and undergraduate students.

The African Journal of Legal Studies (AJLS) is a peer-reviewed and interdisciplinary academic journal focusing on human rights and rule of law issues in Africa as analyzed by lawyers, economists, political scientists and others drawn from throughout the continent and the world. The journal, which was established by the Africa Law Institute and is now co-published in collaboration with Brill | Nijhoff, aims to serve as the leading forum for the thoughtful and scholarly engagement of a broad range of complex issues at the intersection of law, public policy and social change in Africa.

AJLS places emphasis on presenting a diversity of perspectives on fundamental, long-term, systemic problems of human rights and governance, as well as emerging issues, and possible solutions to them. Towards this end, AJLS encourages critical reflections that are based on empirical observations and experience as well as theoretical and multi-disciplinary approaches.

It is hoped that articles appearing in the journal will influence public policy in Africa by providing original, useful and timely critiques of legislation, judicial decisions, law reform and other domestic and foreign policy measures that impact on the daily lives of ordinary Africans. In addition to articles, the journal welcomes reports on recent human rights and governance-related conferences, workshops and seminars as well as books for review and lists of recent publications.

Brill Research Perspectives in International Legal Theory and Practice is a journal that offers a series of short monographs conceptualizing recent developments and fundamental trends in the field and discipline of international law. It encourages cutting-edge scholarship from leading scholars.

In an undertaking that bridges international legal theory, the discipline’s culture, and international legal history, the journal critically examines the emergence and evolution of international legal practices, as well as the intellectual legal projects and theories that have shaped and continue to shape international law and its discipline. Brill Research Perspectives in International Legal Theory and Practice allows us to understand the dynamics that are at play in international law and to reclaim its history whilst, most importantly, encouraging international lawyers to reimagine and rethink its possibilities.

Four issues are published each year, with each issue consisting of a single, short, in-depth monograph. Although the journal is intended primarily for researchers, lecturers, practitioners, and graduate students, its wide-ranging and critical engagement with international law makes it a highly interesting read for a broader audience as well.
