Brill Research Perspectives in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy

[As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy will no longer be published as a journal by Brill but will continue as a book series.]

Brill Research Perspectives in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy provides an open forum for reference publication, critical analysis, and cutting-edge research on contemporary issues of diplomacy and foreign policy. By emphasizing theory-practice integration, multidisciplinarity, and accessibility of content, the journal positions itself at the center of conceptual debates that frame the theory, practice, and transformation of 21st-century diplomatic relations. Published in four issues per year, the journal promotes creative, problem-solving approaches for the management of peaceful change in transnational affairs as a contribution to global governance.

Each issue includes a focused monograph of between approximately 30,000-40,000 words (70-100 pages) presenting the state of the art in a specific diplomatic area in close combination with critical analysis, research, and policy implications.

Brill Research Perspectives in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy’s primary readership includes diplomatic scholars, international relations analysts, graduate and undergraduate students of international affairs, foreign policy decision makers, international NGOs, practitioners, and educators in diplomatic academies.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by email to the publisher Jason Prevost. Please direct all other correspondence to Assistant Editor Debbie de Wit.
