Fall issue of Maine Policy Review now available, includes winning student essays

The fall 2020 issue of Maine Policy Review (Volume 29, No. 2), a special issue celebrating Maine’s bicentennial, is now available on MPR’s Digital Commons site. A brief look at this issue is available on MPR’s website.

The issue provides an overview of Maine’s rich history with articles that focus on the state’s economic development and demographics and articles that examine the impacts of state policies on Indigenous peoples, immigrants and people of color. Other pieces recognize the state’s enormous natural beauty and resource wealth and assess the role of people and policies in the stewardship and development of these natural resources.

It also includes submissions by Margaret Chase Smith Library High School Essay Contest winners, two of whom are now UMaine students: Michael Delorge of Biddeford and Neily Raymond of Hermon. 

Maine Policy Review publishes independent, peer-reviewed analyses of public policy issues important to the state. Archival issues are available on MPR’s Digital Commons.
