Journal of Public and International Affairs

About JPIA

The Journal of Public and International Affairs (JPIA) is the premier student-run journal of policy studies, both foreign and domestic. JPIA is a joint publication of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. Since 1990, the Journal has published scholarly articles on a diverse range of subjects, covering the areas of international affairs, international development, domestic (U.S.) policy, and economic policy.

JPIA is an annual publication, accepting submissions from graduate students at any institution that is a member or affiliate of APSIA. Submissions are reviewed by an editorial board composed of graduate students from Princeton University and other APSIA schools using a blind scoring process. Submissions are solicited November through January and a new edition of the Journal is published each May. For more information, please visit the “Submissions” section of our website.

In 2019, for the 30th edition, we are pleased to publish the first fully digital edition of JPIA. All pieces in the 2019 journal can be viewed on our Current Issue tab. Previous editions can be found on the archives section of our website and in print at APSIA member institutions. Please bear with us as we continue to improve upon the website and migrate content from past issues to the online platform.
