Washington and Lee law professor Susan Franck has recently been invited to provide oversight for two academic publications. First, she will serve as an an external reviewer for the American Political Science Review, the flagship publication of political science in the US. The APSR provides peer-reviewed articles and review essays from subfields throughout the discipline. Areas covered include political theory, American politics, public policy, public administration, comparative politics, and international relations. APSR has published continuously since 1906.
Second, Prof. Franck will join the Editorial Board of a new series on International Investment Law from Martinus Nijhoff Publishers. According to an announcement from the publisher, “the Nijhoff International Investment Law Series groups important, high-quality and original research in the field of international investment law. Although formally a part of international law generally, international investment law has become an independent field of research, crossing the boundaries between public international law, international commercial law, and domestic public law. The Series therefore covers international investment law in a relatively broad sense, including research on the substantive aspects of international investment law and the dispute settlement aspects, i.e., international investment arbitration.
The Series also covers research on interactions between international investment law and other areas of international law and domestic law, both private and public, including international economic and trade law, general public international law, international commercial law and arbitration, international environmental law, human rights, or domestic constitutional and administrative law. It is open to doctrinal analysis as well as theoretical, conceptual, and interdisciplinary approaches to international investment law, including law and economics analysis, empirical analysis, historical analysis, political science analysis, or normative analysis.”
