Weekly Roundup: January 31

As January comes to a close and the bitterness of Montreal’s winter seems to recede, MIR continues to publish. This week:

  • Serbia finally officially began negotiations to join the European Union. Progress, right? According to “Yugosphere,” many issues remain.
  • Justin Trudeau launched a surprising gambit this week, kicking every Liberal senator out of caucus. According to Nadir Khan, this is a political sideshow, not a bold move born of principle.
  • Espionage and the NSA are on everyone’s mind (and I’m sure the NSA knows it). How does that relate to theories of international relations? Aidan Zizys has more.

Thanks for reading the McGill International Review!
