Aims and Scope

The Austrian Review of International and European Law (ARIEL) is an annual publication that provides a scholarly forum to discuss issues of public international law and European law, with particular emphasis on topics being of special interest to Austria. lt focuses on theoretical as well as practical questions and current developments in all areas of public international and European law. Each volume contains the following sections:

  • longer analytical articles;
  • shorter notes dealing with current developments;
  • digest of Austrian Practice in international law, encompassing judicial decisions, executive as well as parliamentary documents relating to international law;
  • longer book reviews and shorter book notes
  • selective bibliography on international investment law prepared by the library of the Peace Palace in The Hague.

Occasionally, the Review also features a distinct documentary part that makes accessible to the interested reader selected materials not, or not easily, available elsewhere.

The editorial board and advisory board are composed of scholars and practitioners of public international and European law to ensure that the interrrelationship between current developments and the evolution of modern public international and European law and thorough scholarly analysis is adequately reflected in the ARIEL.
