About the Judges

Spring 2020

At IPC, we want students to engage with meaningful international relations topics from a variety of perspectives. As such, we have recruited a diverse range of experienced academics, professionals, and students to judge our conference. Our judges have focused on topics ranging from diplomacy to food security and human rights law and much more. We are confident that these individuals will provide our competition a uniquely comprehensive insight into difficult problems in international relations.

Within our overarching topic this Spring — chosen by one of our partners and announced at our opening ceremony — students can focus on any number of aspects related to this "umbrella problem," whether it be security- or development-related, environmental, health- or energy-related, or legal in scope. We fully expect students to bring to this challenge any particular background that they have in any specific discipline in order to provide the concentration necessary for their policy proposals to be robust and realistic. 

Read on for the bios of our Spring 2020 judges that have been announced so far. New announcements of judges and speakers will continue to take place throughout the Summer and the beginning of the Fall. Stay tuned for updates! 

If you're interested in judging for Yale IPC next year, please reach out to director@yaleipc.com we would love to have you!
