The photos on our site were chosen from the top fifteen entries to our 2018 photo contest. We were overwhelmed by the response to this year's photo contest. We received over 160 amazing photos taken around the world by members of the SAIS community. To celebrate the winners and launch this year’s issue, we displayed the winning photos at events on the SAIS DC and Bologna campuses.

SAIS Perspectives launched its 2018-19 issue and celebrated the winners of the 2018 photo contest with events at SAIS DC and SAIS Bologna. The DC event featured a panel discussion with documentary photographer James Whitlow Delano and IDEV program director Professor Tanvi Nagpal. In Bologna, Dr. Michael Plummer, the Director of SAIS Europe, spoke about the theme of this year’s issue of SAIS Perspectives, “Work in a Changing World.”

Who are We?


Who are We?


 

SAIS Perspectives is the student-run publication of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies International Development (IDEV) Program. Our goal is to create a platform for sharing ideas about current issues in the field of international development.

Each year the editors choose a theme and solicit articles based upon that theme from the greater SAIS community. Last year’s theme, “Work in a Changing World,” discussed the challenges we face in the technological age — from artificial intelligence to the automation of manufacturing jobs — and the policy prescriptions aimed at addressing them. The 2018 theme was "Development for All," and the 2017 theme was "Technology and Development." This year’s theme is “Climate Change and Development.” 

Previously, SAIS Perspectives was an annual print publication. In 2014, we launched SAIS Perspectives' new online home, www.saisperspectives.com, making the journal accessible to readers on a global scale. We accept both short blog entries and longer articles for publication consideration. We also welcome other media, such as photos or video.

We encourage all SAIS students, faculty, and alumni, as well as members of the broader community, to submit their work for publication. Learn how to submit pieces here.
