Welcome to the Fall 2014 issue of the Journal of Political Inquiry (JPI), a platform that fosters a unique opportunity for intellectual growth and skill development within the NYU peer community. As a collective of writers, editors, and reviewers, we come together to explore, refine, and expand our writing abilities within the realm of politics.
As editors, we are exposed to diverse writing styles, and introduced to new topics and ideas, and through the process of revising others’ work, we gain valuable insights into our own literary techniques. As authors, JPI allows us to unleash our creativity, breaking free from the confines of class requirements and exploring a vast spectrum of political topics and ideas. The review process enables us to embrace constructive criticism, leading to a deeper understanding of how our writing is interpreted by readers.
We invite you to engage with the Fall 2014 issue of JPI, where you will find a wealth of insightful articles, diverse perspectives, and thought-provoking analyses. Embrace this exchange of knowledge, ideas, and skills as we continue to grow as writers, thinkers, and scholars.
