The LSESU International Development Society is pleased to announce the publication of the first edition of our journal, Voices. Focusing on the interdisciplinary nature of the field, the articles explore the impact of development policies through socio-economic and political lenses as well as assessing issues across the domestic, regional, and international realm in an ever-changing world. We offer our gratitude to the committee of 2019-2020 for all their hard work and efforts with a special mention for outgoing President Nicolas Feil and Head of Research Johann Power. We hope to continue to uphold this initiative under our new team and look forward to sharing further editions throughout the year. We hope you enjoy reading it!
