It is commonplace to affirm satisfaction at a new Journal or periodical appearance. The scientific world can feel satisfied with the birth of the Review of International and European Economic Law (RIEEL), which is called to fill an editorial gap in the national and international order that is evident, which also aims to be filled with a decidedly interdisciplinary approach.
Suppose the so-called Global Legal Order revolves around human rights, the preservation and defence of the environment and world governance. In that case, the RIEEL makes governance inclusive of multilateral cooperation. This axis allows it to project itself on all the significant issues that shake our survival and progress as a species from an economic perspective, respecting fundamental principles and values. The menu is vast and open: international economic law, trade, taxation, financing and sustainable development, investments, customs, banking system, migration, free market and competition, environmental rules, pandemics, money laundering, security, means of dispute settlement, international organizations...
Whether the Journal's baptismal happiness finds confirmation, later, will depend on its contributions, that is, on the success, timeliness, and quality of the articles it requests or receives, its punctual appearance, its attractive presentation, and the favour of its readers.
All this requires an alert, firm and rigorous management, a capable and motivated team, and an advisory board ready to suggest topics and outline guidelines thanks to its wisdom and experience.
The first issue of the RIEEL offers the first section, "Review Articles", of remarkable ambition and impact. Some proposals are presented on codification and progressive law that directly affect the global legal order in two fundamental matters: International fiscal cooperation and the environment. Thus, the first issue already includes a proposal for a General Agreement on International Tax Cooperation, Trade and Global Tax Governance. This study is seasoned with another on the procedural framework that contains some general ideas to facilitate the preparation of an agreement of these characteristics within the framework of the United Nations. This section also includes a work that deals with the codification of international environmental law in its march towards a global pact for the environment.
The number is completed with a series of varied scientific articles written by specialists in international law, financial law, and political science, together with some chronicles of conferences and congresses, and a bibliographical review.
