Started in 2006, the Irish Yearbook of International Law presents, on an annual basis, peer-reviewed academic articles and book reviews on general issues of international law.
Beyond items of a general nature, designated Correspondents provide reports on: international law developments in Ireland; Irish practice in international fora and the European Union; and relations between the North and the South of Ireland. In addition, the Yearbook reproduces documents that reflect Irish practice on contemporary issues of international law.
Publication of The Irish Yearbook of International Law makes Irish practice and opinio juris more readily available to Governments, academics and international bodies when determining the content of international law. In providing a forum for the documentation and analysis of North-South relations the Yearbook makes an important contribution to post-conflict and transitional justice studies internationally.
As a matter of editorial policy, the Yearbook seeks to promote a multilateral approach to international affairs, reflecting and reinforcing Ireland's long-standing commitment to multilateralism as a core element of foreign relations.
The Irish Yearbook is edited by Professor Fiona De Londras, Durham University and Professor Siobhán Mullally, University College Cork.
