New online publication features student writing on global affairs

The Keough School of Global Affairs is launching a new online publication, Policy Pulse, to highlight the academic research and opinion writing of its current graduate students.

Policy Pulse features the work of students in their second year of the Keough School’s two-year Master of Global Affairs program. It will be published annually, with students invited to submit content during their final semester.

The inaugural publication includes seven editorials covering a broad range of global issues: the controversial use of glyphosate to halt cocaine production in Colombia; an argument for values-based immigration policy rather than policy based on enforcement; an exploration of the interplay and “trade-offs” among global sustainability goals for the upcoming United Nations High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development; and a proposal for curbing violence and promoting sustainable fisheries in the South China Sea.

The Master of Global Affairs, a two-year professional degree, prepares its graduates for skilled, effective leadership and careers in government, nongovernmental and civil society organizations, and the private sector. Students receive training in research-based policy to address challenges of the 21st century.
