GIELR Expanding its Scope, Seeking Both Traditional and Non-traditional Formats

GIELR Submissions Editors are now in the process for selecting articles for Issues III and IV of Vol. XXIII, and encourage you to consider publishing with us!

Since 1988, this publication has been at the forefront of legal analysis on matters such as the protection of the global commons, regional and comparative issues, and the intersection between the environment and other international legal areas such as trade, human rights, security, and technology transfer.  The audience GIELR reaches is nearly as broad as its subject matter: GIELR subscribers include practitioners, policy makers, scholars and students worldwide.

We consider all articles that fit the description above and those traditionally associated with international and environmental law, but this year we are also trying to expand the reach of GIELR.  This effort includes not only the development of this blog and other web-based outreach, but also an expansion of the scope of the material we seek and the formats of the work we publish.

We are very excited to begin including articles relating to energy (particularly nuclear and renewables), environmental justice and poverty, and areas near or south of the equator, including South America, Africa, and Southeast Asia.  And while traditional law review formats are welcome, we also encourage scholars and practitioners working on shorter pieces, such as essays, book reviews, or other commentary, to consider publishing with us as well.
If you are interested in submitting work, please email gielr@law.georgetown.edu.

We look forward to hearing from you!
