International Politics publishes innovative scholarship on international relations with a focus on the struggle between states for power in international society. Articles published in International Politics are grounded in international security and statecraft (including economic statecraft) and how powers of various sizes navigate global challenges confronting the international community as they seek manage conflict and facilitate collaboration in a changing world order. International Politics is interested in theory and history to inform contemporary policy. Espousing no specific political position, methodological state, epistemological view, or theoretical paradigm the journal welcomes contributions from around the world that clearly communicates research, provokes deeper dialogue, and challenges prevailing thinking on historical and contemporary understandings of international affairs.
Our reviews section, International Politics Reviews, utilizes an innovative, interactive forum-based discussion method to critically engage with the most contemporary scholarship on these issues.
Published six times per year, International Politics welcomes general submissions on a rolling basis, as well as specific thematic special issue proposals germane to the journal’s focus. Generally we produce three thematic special issues per year, and three regular issues per year.
International Politics’ Editorial Office is in the Moynihan Institute for Global Affairs, Syracuse University, New York, USA.
