Our journal analyzes issues and prescribes solutions to problems around the world in a thought provoking manner. Visually-arresting art pieces convey a multitude of perspectives by representing themes that make policies memorable. Travelogues and photo essays allow first-hand exposure to locales that may seem distant, but have a lasting influence on domestic policies. By working with organizations such as The Institute for International, Comparative, and Area Studies (IICAS), UC San Diego’s International Center and Programs Abroad Office, and coordinating with programs such as the Helen Edison Lecture Series or the Center for Global Justice, we have been able to interview scholars who offer insight and context for international issues.
