Our Mission

The Cornell International Affairs Review is a student-run publication at Cornell University dedicated to publishing papers that contribute to our collective understanding of contemporary international affairs.

Our editors seek to curate papers that present original research and demonstrate novel arguments or interpretative approaches. Papers should preferably address events and trends that are not well-established in current scholarship, yet have immediate global relevance and engage a broader and more diverse audience beyond the traditional academic sphere.

As such, we welcome submissions from any relevant field of study, and particularly encourage papers that seek to address lesser-studied regions and historically underrepresented demographics. We also heavily encourage the submission of papers that utilize non-English language secondary scholarship or primary source research.
