Grapple with current issues in international affairs. Collaborate with talented peers. Get hands-on experience with crafting realistic policy. Present to experts in the field.


The Yale Undergraduate International Policy Competition (IPC) is a brand-new competition model combining the realism of a case-competition, the team-driven style of a Hackathon, and the international affairs content of Model United Nations. For undergraduate students excited for a chance to solve real-world problems with real-world solutions and have their presentations judged by experts in foreign policy, this is your show. 

During IPC, undergraduates will compete to provide the most realistic and effective policy solutions to a current problem in international affairs. Students will work together in teams of four to draft policy briefs that directly respond to an issue raised through an intelligence briefing at the competition's opening ceremony. Competitors will then present their policy proposals to a panel of judges, which will include representatives from IPC's partnering organization, the Yale Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, and a select group of student judges.
