About Us


Established in 2012, the New York University Abu Dhabi Journal of Social Sciences (NYUAD JSS), a student-led initiative of the NYUAD Division of Social Sciences, is a platform for novel undergraduate research related to political science, economics, and social research and public policy. We envisioned the journal as a fulcrum for realizing the full potential of social science scholarship within the NYUAD student body. Thus, in the spirit of the university’s dedication to free academic inquiry, the NYUAD JSS publicly circulates student research. We welcome research across a broad range of fields and foci; given the global nature of our student body, we hope to showcase a compendium of student work that reflects our diverse backgrounds and interests.
