The Military Law and the Law of War Review

Founded in 1962 under the auspices of the International Society for Military Law and the Law of War (the “Society”), the Military Law and the Law of War Review / Revue de Droit Militaire et de Droit de la Guerre (the “Review”) ranks among the oldest and most respected publications at the international level in the area of military/security law and the law of armed conflict. Initially entitled Revue de Droit Pénal Militaire et de Droit de la Guerre / Military Law and the Law of War Review, it changed to its current name in 1989.

The Review prides itself on serving as a leading forum for debate among legal scholars and practitioners, providing an outlet for high-quality publications on all aspects of military law and the law of armed conflict.

The Review is produced by the Belgian Centre for Military Law and the Law of War, with the support of the Belgian Ministry of Defence. It features original articles, case notes, commentaries on the latest legal developments, as well as book reviews. As a distinct trait, the Review accepts contributions in six languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Dutch. All manuscripts are subject to a rigorous process of peer review: more information about the submission process may be found here.

Over the past five decades of its existence, the Review has established itself a key source of analysis and information for civilian and military legal advisors, other practitioners, legal scholars and academics. In 2010 alone, the Review has been received by nearly one hundred libraries and bookshops as well as a worldwide audience of individual subscribers (including 230 members of the Society) in 29 different countries, ranging from Argentina to Finland. To make the Review even more accessible, all issues are available in their entirety on Hein Online (subscription required).

True to its mission of serving as a ‘meeting point for jurists and experts’,* the Review’s Editorial Board is composed of practitioners with a prominent academic background and scholars having a solid grasp of the operational dimension of their studies. This mix of theory and practice, one of the hallmarks of the Review, guarantees a pragmatic approach to the analysis of legal issues and the comprehensive coverage of the key legal developments in the field of military operations and military organization at the international level.
