MIR: Canada’s premier undergraduate journal of international affairs

The McGill International Review is a non-partisan, online daily student publication based in Montréal, Quebec and operated by the International Relations Student Association of McGill (IRSAM). From its roots as a bi-annual university journal in 2000, the MIR now hosts a variety of content on international relations and cultural affairs on its website on a regular basis. The MIR operates year-round, providing a platform for impartial analysis on global issues regularly.

Open-mindedness and tolerance are particularly paramount for MIR, as our staff is composed of McGill University students hailing from across the globe and regular contributors from universities in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. We’ve been awarded Publication of the Year by the Students’ Society of McGill University in 2019, 2020, 2022, 2024 an accolade we were also nominated for in 2017 and 2018. We cover presidential elections, immigration policy, climate change, opinion editorials, and a number of other pressing international issues from a variety of angles.  We publish thoroughly researched and trustworthy student journalism.
