In recognition of the United Nations General Assembly’s unanimous vote in July 2010 to establish the body, UN Woman, the Fall 2010 issue of the Yale Journal of International Affairs will include a special Spotlight on Women with the aim of contributing to academic and policy discussions concerning the enhancement of women’s rights around the world. In this regard, we encourage submissions that focus on an international women’s issue. Approximately one-third to one-half of the Fall 2010 issue will be committed to the theme of women.
