The new Editorial Board of the International Review of the Red Cross
The editorial team of the Review has the privilege to introduce the new Editorial Board of the Journal. The Board was formed this year and met for the first time in Geneva in May 2011. It is composed of experts in multiple disciplines and from diverse geographical backgrounds. The functions of the Editorial Board are to advise the editorial team, conduct peer reviews of articles, and guarantee the high academic quality of the Journal. The Editorial Board equally ensures that all relevant perspectives, both in terms of academic fields and geographic origins, are taken into account in exploring today's humanitarian challenges. The Board will convene once a year to take stock of the development of the editorial line of the Review and to select the future themes of the Review.
