Against the Grain: Recent Civic Mobilizations, Protests, and Popular Movements
Around the world, people are engaged in civic mobilizations, protests, and popular uprisings. These movements stem from economic inequality, oppression, government corruption, minority rights, migration, foreign interventions, and climate change, among other issues. The emergence of these popular uprisings gives us the opportunity to examine the particularities of each movement and their underlying causes. They provide a framework for discussing the major political, social, economic, technological, and environmental issues of our day.
We are welcoming people across disciplines in the pursuit of deeper insight into policy making.
We believe that deep policy insight comes from drawing upon multiple perspectives to a single challenge.
The SAIS Europe Journal is a graduate student-run organization whose primary purpose is to publish peer-reviewed articles for policy makers, academics and professionals who are interested in the world's most pressing policy issues.
With a student body in China, Europe and the United States, the SAIS community is built on a strong foundation of intersecting perspectives. Motivated by its rich global history, the SAIS Europe Journal provides a specialized forum on issues of Security, Environment, Politics, Economics and Development.
On saisjournal.org, we're building an ever-evolving archive of knowledge from the world's most inspired professors, graduate students and policy makers. Aside from serving as an important forum on Global Affairs, the SAIS Europe Journal has two other goals.
First, it is designed to be an effective research tool for practicing policy makers. Second, it provides policy makers, academics and graduate students opportunities for refining their work while also making important contributions.
