The Harvard Political Review is a journal of politics, policy, and culture written and produced entirely by Harvard College students. It was founded by a group of Harvard undergraduates in 1969, including former Vice President Al Gore. The HPR offers student perspectives on political and cultural topics at international, domestic, and local levels in the form of essays, podcasts, and data-driven storytelling. It also publishes stand-alone interviews with prominent political figures. Past interviewees have ranged from Alan Derschowitz to Yo-Yo Ma to Malala Yousafzai.
