General Editorial Information

The Journal’s Mission

The Eastern European Journal of Transnational Relations (EEJTR) is published by the Faculty of Law, University of Białystok, Poland. Located as it is on the eastern border of the European Union, Białystok provides the EU with a natural window to the East which in turn compliments the journal’s overall mission.

The EEJTR is devoted to the study of the politics, societies, economies, laws and foreign relations of central and eastern European countries (including post-Soviet states) and western European countries. By extension, it also embraces North America and therewith provides a very real opportunity to broaden the conduit of academic transfer that spans the Atlantic. Over the years, cooperation between sovereign states on both sides of the Atlantic divide has faced difficult moments, at times even crises, but the “synergy” which underpins transatlantic relations remains dominant.

The journal seeks submissions across a broad spectrum of topics. These include, but are not limited to: state-society relations, law, economics, elections, democratization, foreign policy, criminal justice and migration. Both theoretical and practical submissions are expected.

The journal is dedicated to publications from the social sciences, as well as other related or interdisciplinary fields, as long as they reflect the journal’s mission.

Although the Journal does not support a regular book review section, nevertheless it will occasionally publish reviews of important new works that become available, particularly those concerning the post-Soviet states and relations between Europe and North America.

By agreement with the Santander Universidades program, the Journal is published via the Temida 2, the university’s in-house printing and publishing facility.
