Our new blog - In the Long Run

last modified Mar 15, 2017 12:08 PM

The Department is delighted to have launched its new blog - In The Long Run. The blog aims to cut through the ephemera of trending news to provide insight from leading academic voices in Cambridge and around the world. The blog will feature accessible writing on politics and public policy based on timely reflection and cutting-edge research. It will also publish short commentary, interviews, book reviews, and videos, using today’s news to stimulate new thinking about the past, present, and future.

The editorial team for the blog is based in the Department of POLIS and includes academics and graduate students from across the fields of politics, development studies, public policy, and international relations.

Contributions are welcome from academics and students from both inside and outside of Cambridge. We welcome articles, interviews (text, audio, or video), book reviews and shorter pieces.

In the Long Run has been up and running since the start of 2017, and you can read the current posts here 

Launch event

To celebrate the launch of the blog, the Department hosted a roundtable discussion on Monday 13th March on the French presidential election. Chaired by Dr Dennis Grube (POLIS), the panellists included Hugo Drochon (CRASSH), Olivier Tonneau (MML) and Melanie Lamotte (History). The panellists surveyed the issues at stake and examined what an Emmanuel Macron, Francois Fillon, or Marine Le Pen presidency would mean for France and Europe.
