About YRIS

The Yale Review of International Studies (YRIS) is an undergraduate journal dedicated to publishing both opinion and long-form scholarship on contemporary and historical global issues. In order to address the many questions of international interest, YRIS seeks to stimulate broad and multi-faceted debate on issues ranging from foreign policy to international trends in law, culture, and the environment.
