Basic information

Contexto Internacional is a peer-reviewed journal of International Relations published in English and based at the Institute of International Relations, PUC-Rio, Brazil. Its aim is to offer a forum for conceptually innovative research in International Relations broadly defined. Contexto is particularly keen to promote and encourage the development of International Relations in/of/from the Global South. Submissions that contribute to an understanding of the plurality of perspectives present in the field of IR and that advance a dialogue on the connections between situated knowledge and global affairs are therefore preferred. Individual submissions as well as proposals for special issues will be considered. Contexto also publishes review essays and book reviews. All articles are subject to a double blind peer review process. Submissions must be original and must not be under review elsewhere while under consideration by Contexto. Submissions in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish are accepted. For further information about the journal and the online submission process please consult the journal website:
