Hello everybody! My name is Valentina, and I’ll be part of the wonderful junior editorial team this year. I am in the first year of my Bachelor’s degree in Politics and International relations, and one of the four deputy editors for the International Public Policy Review (IPPR) this 2020-2021 academic year. This exciting journey is for me a way to put into practice my passion for writing and editing (and perhaps a little bit of a grammar obsession) to good use. I hope to work in the publishing industry in the future, and IPPR is the perfect place for me to learn in a wonderfully diverse environment, full of motivated people with a shared passion for contentious issues. I am looking forward to our yearly journal publications, and I hope that you’ll enjoy!
