Editors' Note, Winter 2019

We began work on this issue with the belief that we were about to present more than a collection of research and policy writing, and rather the perspectives and priorities of future leaders in the international affairs arena. The International Affairs Review represents these views and demonstrates the diverse discourse within the passionate graduate community at the Elliott School of International Affairs. We continue to strive to amplify their voices.

As we very well know, many are now fiercely questioning the efficacy of an interdependent, liberal world order. It is in this context that themes of burden sharing, global governance frameworks, and changing U.S. foreign policy dominate the Winter 2019 issue. We hope that readers will enjoy the five articles, the interview, and the book review, and come away with a more nuanced understanding of these complex but vital issues.

We sincerely thank our faculty advisors and the Elliott School of International Affairs for their continued support. Finally, this issue would not have been possible without the excellent work of our contributing writers and the tireless work of our editorial staff, who all displayed great expertise and professionalism throughout the editing process.
