International Policy Forum

International Policy Forum

The International Policy Forum (IPF) is a fully student-run think tank based at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.

Emerging from the realization that there was an absence of student perspective in pressing policy issues, participants in the IPF strive to add their voice to public debate. Each year, approximately sixteen students are chosen to develop policy recommendations for a global issue pertinent to Canada. Through involvement with the IPF, members gain practical political experience and contribute to the understanding of public affairs from a new and often innovative perspective.

Since its inception, the IPF has addressed a diverse range of topics. These have included subjects such as Canada-US relations and the controversal notion of humanitarian intervention. Now in its third year of operations, the IPF continues to be at the forefront of policy research and development.

Currently, the Directors of the IPF are Lauren Hunter and Andrew Vey. The IPF is funded by the UN Society, a student organization at Carleton University.
