New Volume of PYIL XXXVIII (2018)

Dear Readers,

The 2018 volume of the Polish Yearbook of International Law is finally out. The Board of Editors eventually selected thirteen articles for publication. All of them fall within the scope of the core interests of the Yearbook and relate either to public international law or EU law. In addition, the volume contains two book reviews.

The selection process was difficult as we received sixty-three submissions this year. This was a slight increase from the previous year, when we have received fifty-nine submissions. We are glad to see a modest but steady growth of interest among scholars in publishing with us over last couple of years.

The topics addressed by the authors are very diverse. The volume includes traditional texts on public international law (Balcerzak, Wasinski and Hachkevych), two articles relating to international and regional human rights protection (Gliszczyńska-Grabias et al and Djajić & Etinski) and two addressing specific problems that emerge in the context of international investment law (Kułaga & Wang & Żenkiewicz). There are also 6 texts on EU law (Kochenov, Kustra-Rogatka, Grzelak, Podgórski, Sitnik and Majkowska-Szulc & Wowerka).
