ABOUT US

Since its inception, GPS has enjoyed a distinguished reputation as a nexus of North American, Latin American, and the Asia-Pacific regions. In an increasingly globalized society, no policymaker or institution can bring about effective change without welcoming an open exchange of ideas and research from around the world. The faculty at GPS pushes future leaders and policymakers to do just this. Our students connect with their peers, share information and ideas, cooperate across institutional boundaries and, most importantly, find concrete solutions to international problems. It is for these reasons that our student leaders created International Policy Solutions. Although their own work focuses on Latin America and the Asia-Pacific regions, the journal staff is committed to fostering an open exchange of ideas, opinions and research from their peers.


This blog is the web presence of our journal. We hope to contribute to the dialogue by providing a space for students to propose policy solutions to international issues, discuss current affairs, and illuminate areas of study that require further research.
