The Centre for European Research and Education is pleased to present the first issue of the Pécs Journal of International and European Law (PJIEL). The PJIEL aims to provide a platform for the publication of analysis and research relating to international law and European law, with specific attention devoted to legal developments in the Western Balkans. The additional Western Balkans focus of the PJIEL originates from the editors’ firm belief that the legal developments in the states of the aforementioned geographic area, and the process of their European integration is to be regarded as one of the most crucial and topical issues on the European continent.
