About the Journal

The Nordic Review of International Studies (NRIS)

The Nordic Review of International Studies (NRIS) publishes peer reviewed scholarly contributions within the field of International Relations (IR), focusing specifically on Nordic perspectives. The NRIS is committed to publishing articles that examine the international sphere empirically, theoretically, or institutionally from a Nordic angle. This means that the contribution can include, for example, an empirical focus on one or several Nordic countries, a theoretical study that advances IR theory with a Nordic connection such as the Copenhagen School, or IR research that is produced in research institutions within the Nordic countries including the Baltic countries.

Our aim

The aim of the NRIS is to foster scholarly debates on international politics within and concerning the wider Nordic region. The NRIS embraces interdisciplinary approaches and appreciates a wide range of theoretical and methodological choices. We publish primarily in English, but also submissions in Finnish or Swedish can be considered for publication. 


The journal is published by the Finnish International Studies Association (FISA) and committed to the principles of Open Access publishing.
