Queen's Policy Review

Queen's Policy Review

QPR Call for Papers | 2017/18 Academic Year

The Queen’s Policy Review (QPR) is happy to announce its 9th Annual Graduate Publication centered on the theme of, “Security and Insecurity: Balancing Innovation in an Uncertain World”.

We are seeking papers that discuss the pressing policy issues that have and will arise from innovation in Canada and around the world. Additionally, this year we have decided to open a policy blog that will focus on this theme, but will allow for discussion of more present policy problems in Canada in a shorter format, and for more specific analysis of these issues. For additional details on submission guidelines for the blog please go to https://queenspolicyreview.wordpress.com/submission-guidelines/

Our publication will be focused on creating a wider discussion on policy issues that affect the aspects of security in Canada and how innovation creates implications on our country’s future. How can worries about security and insecurity take place alongside innovation?

We invite graduate students from across disciplines to present their research and/or submit papers addressing Canada’s future with innovation policy, or how innovation can work with future policy issues. Such policy issues can be in the realm of, but are not limited to social and economic policy, foreign policy and international development, health policy, energy and the environment, and the rights of Indigenous peoples.

The deadline for papers to be considered is 11:59pm (EST) February 9th, 2018. Please submit all papers to qpr@queensu.ca
