Interstate Journal of International Affairs is an exclusively undergraduate-run academic journal, organised under the auspices of Aberystwyth University's prestigious Department of International Politics. It focuses on issues of international and current affairs, and it aims to allow students an opportunity to comment on and analyse world affairs in depth alongside contributions by academics and practitioners in the field. Its contributions have also been republished internationally.

Interstate provides a space in which students can apply their new skills and pursue their academic interests, while achieving tangible results on paper and online. Our writers and editors work without the pressure of marking, but with the support and critical input of their peers, and the professional oversight of the Department. Today, Interstate publishes twice a year online and in print, and is available at the National Assembly for Wales.

If you are a student of either the Department of International Politics or Aberystwyth University and would like to join Interstate’s editorial team, please e-mail or
