The Yale Journal of International Affairs (YJIA) is a biannual graduate student-run print journal that seeks to bridge the gap between academia and the policy world. YJIA publishes articles, interviews, and op-eds by academic scholars, think tanks, policy practitioners, and advanced graduate students on international affairs topics with implications for policy. We look for original argumentation and insightful criticism.
Recent contributors to the Yale Journal of International Affairs include: Francis Gavin, Robert Jervis, John M. Owen IV, Marc Trachtenberg, Stephen M. Walt, David Cohen, Alexander Evans, Janet Napolitano, Oona Hathaway, Stanley McChrystal, Tony Blair, Paul Collier, Joseph Stiglitz, John Negroponte, and Mary Kaldor, among others.

YJIA was established in 2004 by graduate students at Yale University's MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies. Since 2011, YJIA has been proudly associated with Yale's The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, a division of the MacMillan Center.
