The Spirit of International Law


"The Spirit of an International Law" is a brand new journal that explores the value of international law and international justice mechanisms from an interdisciplinary perspective.

We actively seek contributions that deal with international courts and tribunals and other transitional justice mechanisms, and we will accept work that evaluates international justice more broadly. Though we will accept work from early career specialists in the fields of political science and law, we are particularly interested in promoting the work of young scholars from other disciplines (such as history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, etc.)

Based at Brandeis University in Massachusetts, the "Spirit of International Law" will be published annually with the support of the International Center for Ethics, Justice, and Public Life.
