Stanford International Policy Review


The Stanford International Policy Review is a student-run, student-written, non-partisan policy journal based in the Ford Dorsey International Policy Studies program at Stanford University. SIPR publishes articles on a wide-range of subjects pertaining to current international policy debates, seeking to provide insight into the challenging issues that policymakers confront today, as well as those they will likely face tomorrow. Our authors cover these topics using a variety of lenses, from political science, economics, and area studies, to design thinking, technology, law, and business.
