We are happy to announce that the Michigan Journal of Political Science has been relaunched! Originally founded in 1981, the Journal was created as a platform to share undergraduate work in Political Science in order to foster discussions on contemporary and thought provoking political issues in a non-partisan, academic fashion. Over the course of a year, we have published our inaugural Winter 2020 and Fall 2020 editions, both focused on showcasing exceptional undergraduate work. In these Editions, we brought the same commitment to pursuing diverse and intricate topics in the distinct fields of political science to make better sense of the world around us.
This semester we plan on expanding the reach of our journal in recruiting papers from all around the world ahead of our Winter 2021 Edition. If you are interested in submitting, working or learning about MJPS, please visit our website at: https://mjps.polisci.lsa.umich.edu/.
Lastly, the spirit of this journal lies in the importance of keeping free discourse on the issues that matter most. It was Benjamin Franklin who once said “Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such thing as Wisdom.” We hope our organization carries this philosophy forward, and that our readers are able to find wisdom from the thoughts of the passionate undergraduates who have contributed to this discourse.
