The Michigan Journal of Political Science is a student-run publication, established in 1981 with the goal of discussing current issues and topics in the field of Political Science through highlighting undergraduate work, in a non-partisan and academic fashion. As a University of Michigan undergraduate institution, we use our affiliation with the Department of Political Science to continue to expand the reach and the impact of the journal. After a brief period of inactivity, the Journal has been revived once again to share interdisciplinary thoughts on political science from students around the world. Our Journal publishes a collection of articles within the four political science categories set by the University of Michigan Department of Political Science: American Politics, International Politics, Political Theory, and Comparative Politics.
For our second edition, the Journal grew in size as we received over 100 submissions from dozens of Universities around the world. We will continue our tradition of seeking the most unique, well argued undergraduate papers in political science in the future. We are proud to be publishing our newest edition and we thank each and every student who submitted an essay for consideration.
