The SAIS Europe Journal of Global Affairs is now accepting submissions for its 24th edition to be published in May 2021
Volume 24 - May 2021
Breaking the Fever

As the world turns its attention to an unprecedented global pandemic, the vulnerabilities of international and domestic institutions have been laid bare. Protest movements, climate change and development concerns cast doubt on the sustainability of our global system. Policymakers are struggling to balance evolving economic, political and social needs.
So, what comes next, and how do we get there? Will there be a new normal, several, or none? This year's edition of the SAIS Europe Journal of Global Affairs looks to capture the academic debates 2020 has brought to the fore, while attempting to unravel how and whether these fit into long-running conversations regarding international relations and public policy.

Please send your submissions to by December 11th, 2020 according to the Submissions Guidelines.

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, 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.
