Berkeley Political Review was founded in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks by U.C. Berkeley students who wanted to offer a source of impartial analysis on important issues.

Since then, BPR has covered three presidential elections, the war in Iraq, the expansion of the EU, global poverty, immigration raids, drones, the recession, Berkeley’s tree sitters, Occupy, the politics of ethanol, divestment from Israel, divestment from fossil fuels, and everything in between.
