EJRR - A Journal on the European Law of Risk Regulation

As the European Union is increasingly emerging as de facto global regulator of all kinds of rules concerning the environment, human health, and safety, risk regulation is becoming a new lens through which to analyse the European integration process. Indeed, today the most important and widespread form of EU regulation in the internal market is concerned with the government of risk to individuals' health and safety.

The European Journal of Risk Regulation (EJRR) is an international journal that provides an innovative forum for informed and scholarly discussion on how these risks are regulated across policy domains in Europe and beyond. By focusing on institutional, procedural and substantive aspects of EU risk regulation, the EJRR strikes a balance between the interests of the practitioners, notably those increasingly engaged in regulatory drafting and advice to the industry, and a more theoretical focus, combining normative articles with timely contributions on legislative and judicial developments, new literature and relevant events. The EJRR understands itself as a truly multi-disciplinary journal. While the central focus of the journal is the European law regulating inter alia  product (chemicals, food, pharma), financial, insurance and lifestyle risks (nutrition, alcohol, tobacco and gambling) as well as risks emerging from technology and third-party threats such as terrorism, discussion extends to other social sciences, such as inter alia sociology, regulation studies, political science, risk analysis, economics as well as pychology and cognitive studies. 

The EJRR welcomes the submission of unsolicited contributions for the upcoming issues of the journal. Click here to register and upload your manuscript:

The editors are looking for papers that communicate new research, business analysis and policy insights to an informed readership across EU regulatory domains. Manuscripts will be reviewed on a rolling basis. As we are intending a double-blind peer review, i.e., the author and the reviewer have no knowledge of each other, please make sure that your paper is anonymised before upload on Cosis.
