What is the Virginia Review of Politics?

The Virginia Review of Politics (VRoP or the Review) is an undergraduate-run political review at the University of Virginia. The Review seeks to publish engaging political content for both the University population and the local community at-large. The Review focuses on publishing high-quality student content aiming at a middle range between undergraduate academic journals and student newspaper opinion sections. By doing so, the Review wishes to engage discussion amongst politically and civically-minded individuals in the community.

In particular, the Review seeks to publish a variety of perspectives by individuals who come from diverse intellectual and political backgrounds. By giving otherwise politically disengaged individuals a platform with which to express their ideas and suggestions regarding politics, the Review hopes to foster an environment in which people of diverse interests may all contribute to the study of politics.

Articles published by the Review reflect only the opinions of their authors, and do not reflect upon the Virginia Review of Politics's official position on issues.
