Winter 2022 Call for Papers

Winter 2022 Call for Papers

The Chicago Journal of Foreign Policy (CJFP) is a student-run academic journal published biannually by undergraduates at the University of Chicago. Our journal aims to promote the analysis of international affairs. We are a forum within which undergraduates can explore issues relevant to foreign policy in both the United States and other countries. 

The CJFP Editorial Board hopes to create a publication that presents a range of topics and perspectives. As such, we welcome submissions from all fields of study. This includes content that reflects on a particular country’s foreign policy issues, explores relationships between nations, analyzes developments in international organizations and structures, etc. Content pertaining to the period from 1945 to the present is preferred. We allow submissions of work written as class assignments, for academic research, or out of personal interest. 

Submissions should run at an approximate maximum of 15 pages double-spaced (not including bibliography), with 12-point Times New Roman font and regular margins, although this limit is flexible. Citations should be provided in Chicago Style, with running footnotes. As we will be conducting a blind review of submissions, please remove any personally identifying information from your paper (eg. name, year of study, major, and university) and instead list it in the body of your email. 

Please submit your paper via email to by 11:59 pm CDT on January 9th, 2022. Papers should be submitted as Microsoft Word documents. The subject of your email should be formatted: “Winter  2021_Title.” After the completion of our peer-review process, you will be informed of whether your paper has been accepted by our Editorial Board.
