The Journal of Contemporary European Studies (previously Journal of European Area Studies) seeks to provide a forum for interdisciplinary debate about the theory and practice of area studies as well as for empirical studies of European societies, politics and cultures. The central area focus of the journal is European in its broadest geographical definition. However, the examination of European 'areas' and themes are enhanced as a matter of editorial policy by non-European perspectives. The Journal intends to attract the interest of both cross-national and single-country specialists in European studies and to counteract the worst features of Eurocentrism with coverage of non-European views on European themes. The Journal of Contemporary European Studies pursues a thematic approach to individual issues by dedicating a section of each issue to the examination of a specific theme, although there is also ample scope for outstanding individual articles that are not related to the theme of each issue. In addition, each issue contains a section reserved for contributions in the debate on the theory and practice of area studies. In line with the Journal's commitment to the encouragement and promotion of debate, the editorial board welcomes critical replies to articles that have appeared in earlier issues. The journal also has a strong reviews section, which always includes a large number of reviews on recently published books relating to issue themes. The journal continues to draw contributors from European and area studies departments and from a variety of disciplines within the humanities and the social sciences, and features regular articles on the advantages, scope and limitations of interdisciplinarity.
