Published for over 50 years, the aim of Cooperation and Conflict is to promote research on and understanding of international relations. It believes in the deeds of academic pluralism and thus does not represent any specific methodology, approach, tradition or school. The mission of the journal is to meet the demands of the scholarly community having an interest in international studies (for details, see the statement ‘From the Editors’ in Vol. 40, No. 3, September 2005). The editors especially encourage submissions contributing new knowledge of the field and welcome innovative, theory-aware and critical approaches. First preference will continue to be given to articles that have a Nordic and European focus. Cooperation and Conflict strictly adheres to a double-blind reviewing policy.

"Always strong, always distinctive, Cooperation and Conflict is now positioning itself to be 'the' journal of interdisciplinary international relations in Europe." Christine Sylvester Lancaster University, UK

"Cooperation and Conflict has been a steady source of understandable and useful discussion about the state of the world. The mix of work from new researchers and established names gives an added value for the reader, and the emphasis over the years on the Nordic region has provided particular insights not found elsewhere." Clive Archer Manchester Metropolitan University, UK

"Cooperation and Conflict is an indispensable source for those interested in the politics and economics of the Baltic and Scandinavian areas. It has also gained deserved stature as an important venue for leading-edge empirical essays on more general international politics and on major debates in international relations theory." K. J. Holsti University Killam Professor of Political Science (emeritus), University of British Columbia

"Cooperation and Conflict is one of the leading international relations journals in Europe. The diversity of intellectual approaches included in Cooperation and Conflict is an ideal way for political scientists, critical theorists and sociologists to engage each other, and discuss the most pressing developments in Europe" Christine Ingebritsen University of Washington, USA

"A scholarly journal of long standing and superb quality" Christer Jonsson Lund University, Sweden
