Government and Politics Review was established in 2010 by Fiona Buckley and Dr. Theresa Reidy. The journal provides a forum for students to contribute to political debates at national and international level. All students, undergraduate and postgraduate, are welcome to submit their work. In particular, we encourage students taking Department of Government modules as part of their undergraduate degrees (BA – Politics, BComm and BSc Government) to consider submitting an article. The journal is published in one volume annually, is peer reviewed, and published online as an open source journal.
The journal was created through a NAIRTL project in 2010. In 2012 the journal was funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs under the Communicating Europe Initiative.
The first edition was launched by then Minister for Foreign Affairs, Micheal Martin, on March 26th 2010. A conference on the journal theme, Political Reform, was organised to mark the launch.
This journal is a collaborative effort by both students and staff of the Department of Government. Every year a student representative from the student society, Government and Politics Society, will edit the journal. The editor for the academic year 2015-2016 is Charlotte Smith, MA Politics student. The editorial board will consist of students and staff of the Department of Government.
