Dear JPI Community,

Here’s wishing you a restful holiday, as JPI takes a short break from publishing over the next few weeks. Thanks to all of you who have written, commented, shared and read our publications over the last semester. Over the last 4 months, we have published more articles than we ever have before, and helped bring students’ expertise and experience to some of the most pressing political questions around the world.

From the women in ISIS, to the uneven responsibilities of peacekeeping, to the case against Lebanon’s political system, to of course the most recent US election, if you haven’t already, please read below the thought-provoking articles produced by Master’s students from the NYU community. And, of course, don’t miss out on the Fall 2016 edition of our Journal, put together by a dedicated team of writers and editors throughout the semester.

We hope you will join us next year as we continue to unpack some of the thorniest political dilemmas from around the globe.

Warmest Regards,

Clare Church & Prianka Srinivasan
