Aims and scope

Journal of International Trade Law and Policy (JITLP) is an international journal receptive, but not limited, to the methods of economics, law, and the social sciences. As scholars tend to read individual articles of particular interest to them, rather than an entire issue, authors are not required to write with full accessibility to readers from all disciplines within the purview of the Journal. However, interdisciplinary communication should be fostered where possible. Thus economists can utilize quantitative methods (including econometrics and statistics), while legal scholars and political scientists can invoke specialized techniques and theories. Appendices are encouraged for more technical material. 

Submissions should contribute to understanding international economic policy and the institutional/legal architecture in which it is implemented. Submissions can be conceptual (theoretical) and/or empirical and/or doctrinal in content. 

Topics of interest include but are not limited to: 

  • All aspects of international trade law and policy
  • All aspects of international investment law and policy
  • All aspects of international development law and policy
  • All aspects of international financial law and policy
  • Relationship between economic policy and law and other societal concerns, including the human rights, environment, health, development, and national security
