As snow melts in Montreal and Canada cleans up at Sochi, the McGill International Review keeps on keeping on.

  • Since the end of the Cold War, Vietnam has abandoned a strict communist system for liberalizing economic reforms. Yet, the Party holds as tight a grip as ever on power. How do the Vietnamese feel about these changes, and lack thereof?
  • Women are on the rise in the Conservative Party, backroom and front office. What does this mean? Nadir Khan, on “Loon Calls.”
  • The UN’s Millennium Development Goals were an important set of milestones that the world will probably miss meeting by 2015. How can the goals and the methods used to reach them be reformed?

Thanks for reading the McGill International Review!
