About the Journal


The Cambridge Review of International Affairs is a peer-reviewed journal, publishing innovative scholarship on international affairs from across the social sciences, including international relations, history, law, political economy, area studies, development studies and gender studies.  It is committed to a diversity of approach and method and encourages the submission of multi- and interdisciplinary contributions from academics and policymakers.

CRIA is edited in the Department of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge and published six times a year by Routledge, Taylor and Francis.

Scholarly debate is promoted through CRIA's signature thematic sections of four or five articles debating theoretical, empirical and/or methodological questions, as well as in its book review forums and responses. The submission of articles from panels, workshops, and conferences for joint publication is encouraged.

We also host academic journalism, including reportage on events in Cambridge, commentaries on current affairs, and scholarly debates on our blog, CRIAViews. To contribute to our online content, please contact
