About the journal
Europe and the World – A Law Review aims to contribute to legal scholarship on the place of Europe in the world, with a particular but by no means exclusive focus on the EU’s external relations law.
The journal serves as a forum where the national, international and EU perspectives meet and engage. The journal is therefore irreverent of traditional distinctions between EU, international, and national law. While primarily offering legal doctrinal and theoretical analyses, the journal also publishes multi-disciplinary work and political science and international relations contributions with an external perspective on the law of EU’s external relations.
The first issue includes an editorial and four articles:
- ‘Making Transnational Markets: The institutional politics behind the TTIP’, Marija Bartl.
- ‘The EU and International Dispute Settlement’, Allan Rosas.
- ‘Of Presidents, High Representatives and European Commissioners: The external representation of the European Union seven years after Lisbon’, Frank Hoffmeister.
- ‘(Not) Losing Out from Brexit’, Annette Schrauwen.
