Checks & Balances

Read Checks & Balances' online articles here!

Checks&Balances is the magazine of Study Association Clio and is published three times per academic year. The magazine focuses on international politics, economics, jurisprudence, and history. All this is covered with an international perspective. Each issue covers in-depth articles and interesting interviews, and discusses the way elements of international relations are applied in the modern day world. Checks&Balances has interviewed prominent people such as Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, Alexander Pechtold, Ben Bot en Hisashi Owada (president of the International Court of Justice in The Hague).

A motivated and driven group of students and young professionals attempt to provide a fresh alternative to the mass media. The new website contributes to this goal by providing a quicker medium alongside the magazine's slow journalism style. New website posts and articles appear weekly. Comments and feedback are greatly appreciated.
However, contributing to the Checks&Balances Magazine can be done in various ways which initially only require passion for international relations, learning the tools of the trade along the way. So do you want to excel, differentiate and transcend your academic career? Do you want to get your foot in the door of politicians, professors and CEO's? Make sure you apply for the solicitations at the start of this academic year!
