The Military Law and the Law of War Review / Revue de Droit Militaire et de Droit de la Guerre is looking for a new editor-in-chief.

Candidates should have a solid practical and/or academic background in the areas of law covered by the Review (military law, the law of war and other areas of law relevant to military lawyers), a good network of contacts with experts in these fields, the necessary academic skills (preferably prior experience as an editor or member of an editorial board) and the required language proficiency (very good English and preferably some knowledge of French, German, Spanish, Italian or Dutch).

The editor-in-chief is responsible for guiding work on the Review and steering its further development, in collaboration with the Review’s editorial board and with the support of the editorial assistants, its secretariat, and its other collaborators. This includes making proposals for topics to be covered (notably recent developments and any thematic issues or ‘agora’), approaching potential authors and following-up on promised contributions, organising the peer review process and taking final decisions on accepting submissions, doing some editing, and taking initiatives to promote the further dissemination and development of the Review. Further information can be obtained from the current editor-in-chief via

The appointment will be for an initial period of one year, which may be extended thereafter. The post is non-renumerated but offers a rewarding academic experience and an opportunity for interesting contacts with many experts in the field as well as privileged participation in the activities of the International Society for Military Law and the Law of War.
