Submissions for the Attaché Journal are now OPEN for the 2020-2021 year. Please email all submissions to “”.

Submissions are open to all undergraduates and we welcome all manner of high-quality publications (such as research papers, book reviews, op-eds) on topics relevant to international relations and politics, broadly defined.

Note that submissions must meet the following criteria:
– MS Word Format – no PDFs.
– approximately 8-14 pages (double-spaced, 12 pt font) (pieces over or under this limit may still be considered)
– Chicago-Turabian citation style ONLY. Footnotes, rather than in-text citations.

We recommend you submit papers that have achieved a mark of 80% or higher. However, we will judge the merit of your submission based on the quality of the paper and not on its numbered grade.

Submissions should be emailed to with the subject line “[FirstName LastName] – 2020 Attaché Submission” and are due by MONDAY, OCT 26TH AT 11:59 PM (EST).

Our submissions’ guidelines and themes vary by year. We have historically accepted academic essays and photography, and more recently, alternative short and long-form writing pieces, artistic pieces, and more. We encourage submissions from undergraduate students from a variety of disciplines — and have focused on themes ranging from state politics and cyberspace to local social movements and urbanization.
