"The accident of where one is born is just that, an accident; any human being might have been born in any nation"

I've just received some information on a great site that I had previosuly not come across. Called 'e-International Relations', it's a resource designed for people interested in international politics, and is run by students at universities across the world.

e-IR is an online resource for students of international relations. Established in November 2007, the site aims to collect, in one digital repository, a wide variety of resources helpful to students of international politics, diplomacy and global governance. e-IR is non-profit and is unaffiliated with any institution. The objects of e-IR are to:
Publish regular editorials by staff and guest writers; collate important news from politics and international relations departments in UK universities; publish high-quality student essays in international relations (citing the author and the course for which the essay was submitted); actively encourage the discussion and commentary of articles, editorials, essays and issues in international politics.
As the site grows we hope to:
Publish an online peer-reviewed journal of international relations, accepting unsolicited submissions from students; review courses in international relations, and the departments within which they fall, to provide guidance to students for future study and research; and review books, academic journals, and events (conferences, seminars etc.) to highlight key issues in international relations and any emerging research that may be of benefit or interest to students.

The site is really well designed and definitely worth a look. I hope to be submitting a comment piece to them in the next month or so.
