I never post as much as I should about the fabulous work done by the student editors of The Fletcher Forum.  Partly compensating for my recent lapse, I’m going to share the list of articles I recently received in a Forum newsletter.  Note that, “Founded in 1975, The Fletcher Forum of World Affairs is the student-managed foreign policy journal at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.  The publication provides a broad, interdisciplinary platform for analysis of legal, political, economic, environmental, and diplomatic issues in international affairs.”  And you can follow the Forum on Twitter.  Happy reading!
