The Journal's History

The first issue of Mezinárodní vztahy (International Relations) was published in 1966 by the Institute of International Politics and Economics (Prague), the predecessor of the contemporary Institute of International Relations. It was the first and, for a long time, the only scholarly journal in the fields of political science and international relations in Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic.

After 1989, our journal played a crucial role in the establishment of the Czech / Slovak discipline of International Relations as a social science. Since 2001, all refereed submissions are subject to a strict double-blind peer review process. In 2018, the journal expanded to include its English version titled Czech Journal of International Relations.
