Zeitschrift für ausländisches öffentliches Recht und Völkerrecht (ZaöRV) / Heidelberg Journal of International Law (HJIL)

Aims and Scope

The ZaöRV is published on a quarterly basis since 1929 by the Directors of the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, Heidelberg, in association with the Institute’s former Directors. The journal aims at providing an international forum to discuss fundamental and current issues of public international law, European Union law as well as the municipal law of the European Union’s Member States and selected non-Member States. Its ambition is to publish contributions by authors from all over the world covering a wide array of topics central to international law as well as different approaches to international law. Thereby, the journal aspires to reflect the discourse on public law’s international dimension in its diversity, fullness and richness. The journal’s English title is ‘Heidelberg Journal of International Law (HJIL)’.

Public international law is covered in all its aspects. The main subjects of interest include, but are not limited to peace-keeping and the United Nations, the international protection of human rights, new developments in international economic law, the law of the sea and environmental law, as well as aspects of the law of the European Union and other multi-level government systems. The journal also features contributions on legal theory and legal philosophy in all areas of public law and public international law.

The spectrum of studies on comparative law focuses on the public law of the European Union’s Member States, and also the constitutional and administrative law of other States which are representative of general trends and developments in public law.

The ZaöRV also features annual reports  on the Federal Republic of Germany’s public practice and jurisprudence in public international law.

The journal is bilingual and contains articles both in German and in English. Though directed to an international audience and featuring articles from international law scholars all over the world, the journal remains committed to bringing the specific contribution of German legal scholarship to the development of the theory and practice of international law to the attention of an international readership. As this tradition is most directly conveyed in the German language, the journal upholds and promotes the practice of using German as a language for academic discourse. At the same time, the German contributions are made accessible to an international audience by providing English abstracts and titles.
