Now calling for contributors!

Journal of International Organizations Studies

The Journal of International Organization Studies invites UNSA members to submit their work to JIOS. The Journal Management looks forward to publishing your research or comments on the workings of international organizations. JIOS is now calling for papers for its Fall 2014 and 2015 issues.


OUT NOW: JIOS 2014 Spring Issue

Our Spring 2014 issue is a specially themed issue, guest edited by Julian Junk (Peace Research Institute Frankfurt) and Frederik Trettin (University of Konstanz).

The issue, entitled Micropolitics meets Geopolitics: internal dynamics and dysfunctions of international organizations discusses how bureaucracies can act as spoilers in peacekeeping operations. 

In six articles the authors discuss UN missions in East Timor, Sudan and the DR Congo, as well as analysing inter-agency coordination problems. Read the latest issue.

About JIOS:

JIOS is a new, peer-reviewed journal that seeks to encourage the creation of a distinct field of international organization studies. It aims to provide a window into the state of the art in international organization research, and function as a platform for interdisciplinary dialog on international organizations.

JIOS' mission is to support innovative approaches to the study of international organizations. We particularly welcome papers that explore new grounds and transcend the traditional perspective of international organizations as merely the sum of its members and their policies.

JIOS is seeking contributions for its 2014 and 2015 issues. If you would like to contribute, please visit: for more information or email the editors at
