What are we?
International Relations Today is a blog on current international affairs. The content published here focuses on issues relevant today and aims to facilitate discussion of these.
Who are we?
This blog is run by students of International Relations at King’s College London. However, any views presented here are not views of our department, War Studies, but our own personal opinions.
We are a group of students that has migrated from all over the world to study in London, arguably the hub of international relations.
From Swedish Kenyans, to French Germans and Chinese Australians – our perspectives and experiences cover the globe. With the help of our degrees in progress we provide unique comments on and analyses of current global affairs.
How do I get involved?
The blog publishes content form all King’s College students that wish to contribute. Should you wish to contribute, please follow the blog submission guidelines.
Should you wish to get in touch regarding any affiliation or cooperative endeavour (whether as an individual or organisation), please contact the editorial team at email@example.com
Blog Submission Guidelines:
1. Getting in touch. If you have written a piece that you would like published with IR Today please email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the region as your email subject title. Please make sure you include an author bio of one to three sentences for us to include when publishing.
2. Structure. We publish 3 types of articles:
- Lists – under 500 words, are likely to be more informal, yet relevant to a current issue;
- Brief comments – 500-700 words, contain a brief commentary on a recent event or current affair matter;
- In-depth analyses – 1000+ contain a longer and more detailed overview and analysis of a current affair issue.
3. Extra material. Submitted pieces may (and are encouraged to) include complementary material such as images, graphs, and statistics – please make sure you include the sources of these.
