Founded in 1970 by Samuel Huntington and Warren Demian Manshel, and now published by the FP Group, a division of Graham Holdings Company, in Washington, D.C., Foreign Policy is the premier, award-winning magazine of global politics, economics, and ideas. Our mission is to explain how the world works — in particular, how the process of globalization is reshaping nations, institutions, cultures, and, more fundamentally, our daily lives. FP is a 2010, 2006, and 2005 nominee and a 2009, 2007, and 2003 winner of the National Magazine Award for General Excellence. The magazine’s readers include some of the most influential leaders in business, government, and other professional arenas throughout the United States and more than 160 other countries.

In January 2009, ForeignPolicy.com was relaunched as a vibrant, daily online magazine. Rather than merely complementing the print edition, the site stands on its own as one of the web’s premier destinations for international news and opinion. FP has recruited some of the sharpest writers in international politics to look beyond the day’s headlines to uncover overlooked stories and unique angles.
