Write for IPPR

Who can contribute?

The International Public Policy Review is a student-run online journal that welcomes submission from all School of Public Policy students with the aim of showcasing excellent contributions. We welcome contributions from undergraduates, postgraduates, PhDs and academics.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for submissions that fall under this year’s theme of ‘Borders and Boundaries’. Conditional on that submissions can cover a wide range of topics within international public policy including foreign policy, economics, politics, governance, environment, security and human rights. We are looking for contributions within three categories: opinion pieces, policy reviews and academic articles. We urge contributors to make sure their piece conforms to these categories, as we take this into account in the selection process. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to discuss your ideas before you start writing and we will let you know if it falls under the theme.

For detailed information on submissions, see our Journal Information Document (PDF) and Journal Submission Document (PDF).


We are also seeking submissions for our blog – we welcome contributions from all UCL students, on any Public Policy related topics. For more information on what kind of contributions we are looking for, see our Information Page. A selection of the best blog posts will be considered for publication in the journal.
