The Monitor Journal

The Monitor is the College of William and Mary's journal of international studies. We publish a journal each semester featuring articles with original research from students at the College. Each semester we strive to create a journal that offers fresh and innovative perspectives on global events.


Our Spring 2018 Issue is online! It features articles on Boko Haram and gender-based violence, the disconnect between the Westphalian state model and the developing world, and study of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, which, despite being "unprofessional," remains highly effective. These articles, as well as many more from years past, can be found on our Issues page. 

In an effort to expand the breadth of material the Monitor publishes, we are excited to announce that the Monitor has started a blog. This effort will deliver the same thorough and keenly critical perspectives that our readers have come to expect, but in a shorter form that will allow us to keep abreast of a rapidly-changing international environment.
