Demos: Journal of Politics, International Relations, and Economics, Business, Finance at Lake Forest College

About This Journal

The idea behind Demos was to create factual, open, and balanced discussion in politics, international relations, and economics, business, finance. With seemingly high levels partisanship, accusations of “fake news,” and the rampant spread of “Alternative facts,” it seemed that an academic journal for politics and economics could be beneficial. Maybe it seems unconventional to use the very subjects that cause partisanship to build bridges, but the thought behind it was that scholarly knowledge and empiricism could bring people together and lead to greater dialogue and impartiality.

Published yearly, Demos, features an accumulation of academic work at Lake Forest College from the past calendar year. We showcase what our peers are learning and the class essays they have put so much work into.
