Michigan Journal of International Affairs (MJIA)
MJIA was founded as a completely student-run, undergraduate publication at the University of Michigan. Each semester, MJIA publishes opinion-based pieces pertaining to international affairs in the areas of politics, history, economics, and culture. Writers author pieces across five different regions (Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East) and are actively involved in the entire process, from editing to final distribution. MJIA also serves as a platform for discussions concerning global affairs, and every year the Journal organizes panel meetings to analyze a specific international issue from the past few months.
