The objective of the Journal is to explore the application of international law to humanitarian crises and, more specifically, to examine the role that this legal framework plays in protecting human security during times of emergency.

The scope of the Journal is broad and it publishes papers on international humanitarian legal issues including but not limited to: the law of international and non-international armed conflict; the protection of human rights during times of armed conflict; international refugee law; military law; disaster law; the law of post-conflict reconstruction; and international criminal law.

The Editors-in-Chief are Russell Buchan (University of Sheffield, UK), Emily Crawford (University of Sydney, Australia) and Rain Liivoja (University of Queensland, Australia).

The Journal is now accepting contributions for Volume 10(1), which will be published in late 2019. The Journal publishes full length articles (of no more than 10,000 words), shorter commentaries and case comments (4,000 words), and book reviews (1,500 words). The Journal welcomes contributions from academics, government and non-governmental organisation officials, military personnel, and practitioners working in the humanitarian field more generally.

Contributions must adhere to OSCOLA referencing style. Guidance on preparing and submitting manuscripts is available at www.jihls.net/authors. For contributions to be considered for publication in Volume 10(1) they must be submitted no later than the 15 January 2019.
