Yale International Policy Competition

The Yale International Policy Competition (YIPC) is a brand-new competition model combining the realism of a case-competition, the team-driven style of a hackathon, and the international affairs content of Model United Nations. For Yale undergraduate students excited for a chance to solve real-world problems with real-world solutions and have their presentations judged by experts in foreign policy, this is your show.

During YIPC, Yale undergraduates will compete to provide the most realistic and effective policy solutions to a current problem in international affairs. Students will work together in teams of four or five to draft policy briefs that directly respond to an issue raised through an intelligence briefing at the competition’s opening ceremony. Competitors will then present their policy proposals to a panel of judges, which will include representatives from YIPC’s partnering organization, the Yale Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, and a select group of student judges.

Participation in the competition is limited to current Yale undergraduates. General audience members are welcome to spectate the students’ policy presentations, first round and final round. A final schedule will be posted the the competition website, https://www.yaleipc.com.
