KR is a student-led, open-access and independent research journal, with a focus on humanist topics.

KR is concerned with perspectives from the worlds of foreign affairs, public policy, and society that escape the classroom and public limelight. We endeavour to empower students and academia to embark on research most pertinent to their field of interest.

Based in Canberra we accept submissions from around the world.


KR is operated exclusively by students participating on a voluntary basis to enhance and promote the quality of student research in international affairs.

Our seed funding for the calendar year 2020 has been granted by the Student Extracurricular Enrichment Fund (SEEF), administered by the ANU Postgraduate and Research Students’ Association (PARSA).
