Focus and Scope

The Rechtsvinding is a peer-reviewed periodical that provides a dynamic platform for the dissemination of ideas on comparative law and reports on developments in the field of human right protection from all parts of the world. In our contemporary globalized world, it is almost impossible to isolate developments in the law in one jurisdiction or society from another. At the same time, what is traditionally called comparative law is increasingly subsumed under aspects of International Law.

The Rechtsvinding, therefore, aims to maintain the discipline of comparative legal studies as vigorous and dynamic by deepening the space for comparative work in its transnational context. Rechtsvinding is an open access, peer-reviewed and refereed international journal published by the Lembaga Contrarius Indonesia.

The scope of Rechtsvinding includes both private and public law, with a particular focus on comparative studies. The Editors encourage authors to submit interdisciplinary articles and/or analyse a legal problem from a comparative perspective. We particularly welcome proposals elaborating on how the comparative method is applied in domestic and international law-making and jurisprudence. Consequently, we invite original contributions on public international law and the protection of human rights. By the same token, we welcome papers dealing with all fields of public law, legal theory, legal justice and philosophy, as well as the history of law.

The journal warmly welcomes contributions from scholars with related disciplines. Novelty and recency of issues, however, are the priority in publishing.
