Spring 2014 Edition Published –

The Sanford Journal of Public Policy is proud to announce the publication of this year’s spring edition. The Journal is available for free in digital form here, and hard copies are available for purchase here.

The spring edition features articles from three fantastic writers. Shelby Eden Dawkins-Law, a doctoral student in the School of Education at UNC-Chapel Hill, writes about school choice and segregation using critical race policy analysis. Jacqueline Hayes, a Latin American, Caribbean, and U.S. Latino Studies doctoral candidate at the University of Albany, discusses the policy benefits of a broader definition of sweatshops. Xiao Recio-Blanco, a Duke Law student, examines Spanish nuclear power policy through a case study of the Garoña plant.

This edition is my last as editor-in-chief of the Sanford Journal. I’m happy to announce Peter McElroy, MPP ‘15, as next year’s editor-in-chief. Peter did a fantastic job this year as one of our two print editors, and has been hard at work assembling a staff and planning for the year ahead. I have no doubt he and his staff will do a great job.

Thank you all for your support this year. I hope you will check out the spring edition. Have a great day!

About the Journal –

The Sanford Journal of Public Policy was created in 2009 as a forum for public policy students and professionals to contribute to the current policy discourse through insightful analysis and innovative solutions.

The Sanford Journal is run by the graduate students of the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University and is published online and in print twice annually. The Journal solicits articles across the spectrum of public policy in a variety of formats, including policy research and position papers, issue briefs, opinion pieces, reviews of recently published books, and interviews with policy professionals.

In addition to the Journal itself, the SJPP administers a blog that serves as a place where public policy students, academics, and practitioners can stay connected to current policy discussions and express their own views on today’s policy challenges.

The views and opinions expressed in the Journal and on the website are the authors’ own and do not necessarily represent the views of the Sanford School of Public Policy or Duke University.
