Our Best of 2019
Welcome to 2020. 2019 was a busy year for International Policy Digest. As I look back on 2019, I am taking stock of how the website has grown in just the past year.
Our growth numbers have exceeded my expectations. But more importantly, the growth of International Policy Digest is due solely to our contributors. For without them, the website wouldn’t exist.
So with that I want to highlight 10 pieces, in no particular order, that did particularly well with either readership numbers, social media traffic or reader support.
I wish I could highlight the 1,000+ articles I’ve published over the last year.
Here’s to continued growth and community in 2020.
