The Patterson Journal of International Affairs (PJIA) is an online and print publication run by Patterson School students and graduates. As a registered student organization, PJIA strives to integrate with our UK and Lexington communities through meaningful analysis that informs local and global debates. Lexington is a small city with an international outlook. As such, there is a strong demand for local insights into international issues, and that is a niche in both the local market and the local intellectual community PJIA fills. Covering topics from international development to commerce to security and diplomacy, the PJIA is the place to get prudent analysis on all of today's hot button issues.
