The Maastricht Journal of Politics & Economics
What do we do ?
We are the Maastricht Journal of Politics & Economics (MJPE), a student-led journal that provides weekly articles on the topics of politics, economics, but also geopolitics, international conflicts, etc. We publish our articles on our website, and are active on Instagram and LinkedIn.
How were we created?
Our Journal was founded in April 2022 by Matthias Sciollintano. Before being branded as The Maastricht Journal of Politics & Economics (MJPE), we acted as the "Blog Committee" of PES Maastricht. Our current "identity" and logo were then established in October 2022.
