Founded in 1970 by Samuel Huntington and Warren Demian Manshel, and now
published by the Slate Group, a division of Washingtonpost.Newsweek
Interactive, LLC, in Washington, D.C., FOREIGN POLICY
is the premier, award-winning magazine of global politics, economics,
and ideas. After winning our third Ellie (National Magazine Award) in six years, we believe the judges said it best:
Serious without being pompous, deep without being self-indulgent, Foreign Policy is an essential modern guide to global politics, economics, and ideas for people who want to know what's really happening in an increasingly complicated world. Foreign Policy both simplifies and clarifies complex topics with crisp, insightful writing and clear design.
Judges' Remarks, 2009 National Magazine Awards
Equal parts scout and translator, we draw on the worlds leading
journalists, thinkers, and professionals to analyze the most
significant international trends and events of our times, without
regard to ideology or political bias. Whether examining who the winners
are in Iraq, determining solutions to save the world, or discovering
the states that fail us, we strive to combine original thinking with
real-world illustrations of ideas in action.
The New ForeignPolicy.com
