"Kroeger Policy Review (KPR) is an opportunity to start something that has never been done before. KPR is a virtual publication for public policy analysis and discussion by Arthur Kroeger College students at Carleton University that aims to be informative, succinct, and accessible. We're a public policy publication that is for everyone

We started KPR because we saw so many Canadians, especially those our age, become incredibly aware of the issues that are defining our generation: COVID-19, racial injustice, economic injustice, sexism, and climate change. Even though people were becoming more aware of these issues, they were not becoming increasingly aware of the public policy that has led us to this tipping point and the public policy that is needed to get past this point. 

Our goal is to bridge this gap by making public policy analysis that is succinct, simple, light on acronyms and abbreviations, and written in plain language. As a publication we pledge to be inclusive, diverse, and accessible and have designed our organization to be as inclusive, diverse, and accessible as possible."

our content

Great question! All of our content aims to be short, succinct, and informative, but it's generally sorted into two categories: policy briefs and opinions. Policy Briefs can be much more analytical and explanatory while Opinions tend to be more argumentative and use more persuasive language. All content should aim to be between 750 and 1000 words and should be cited in 17th Chicago Endnotes. 

 

Our content is organized into two categories: regular content and issue content

 

Regular content can be about anything policy-related! You pick the topic! Our regular content is published daily - we won't hold it back if the isn't related to the issue.

Issue content is more focused. Each issue is developed by a small group of KPR team members who work collaboratively to create a focused and engaging issue examining one topic. This is a great chance for our team members to deeply engage with a topic that they're interested in and collaborate with their peers, faculty, and industry experts to create their pieces.

Another fantastic question! All of this can seem like a lot of work for absolutely nothing, but it's not! There's a lot that you get out of this too, including the opportunity to: 

  • practice researching and writing policy analysis that will be necessary for academic success and employability with the opportunity for feedback; 

  • have your work published in a publication with the support of the Arthur Kroeger College of Public Affairs for resume-building, employment opportunities, portfolios, and academic experience

  • collaborate with your peers on real-world applicable topics to broaden your own understand;

  • network and engage with your peers of different academic years, programs, and specializations; and,

  • connect with faculty through interviews, discussions, and workshops exclusively for KPR staff
