IR Review




The International Relations Review is an independent scholarly journal of international relations published at Boston University by its undergraduate students. Its content is far-reaching for an academic journal, and ranges from academic reports on specific issues to op-ed works on current states of affairs. The IRR aims to unite the many voices within Boston University’s International Relations community to heighten awareness about pressing issues at the forefront of the international community. 100% of its content is submitted and edited by undergraduates.

The IRR began in mid-2009, when the International Affairs Association of Boston University resolved to create an academic journal revolving around Boston University’s vast department of international relations. Its first issue had 12 pages, and included four student articles, six photos, an editorial piece and an editor’s note. Currently the IRR has two annual editions, printed in the fall and spring. The Spring 2015 issue was the largest print edition thus far, encompassing briefings, essays, photos, and opinion pieces in 64 quality pages.
