Foreign Policy is a bimonthly American magazine founded in 1970 by Samuel P. Huntington and Warren Demian Manshel. Under the stewardship of editor-in-chief Moises Naim, Foreign Policy evolved from an academic quarterly in the 1990s to a bimonthly glossy, winning the 2009, 2007, and 2003 National Magazine Award for General Excellence. It is published by The Washington Post Company in Washington, D.C., USA. Its topics include global politics, economics, integration and ideas. On September 29, 2008, The Washington Post Company announced that they had purchased Foreign Policy for an undisclosed sum from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

In early 2006, the magazine expanded its web presence by launching a blog, Foreign Policy Passport. On January 5, 2009, Foreign Policy re-launched its website with an ambitious goal: Become “a daily web magazine that is a must-read for anyone who cares about international affairs, […] indispensable, insightful and as diverse as the subjects it covers, […] serious but never stuffy.”[1]

The magazine's website recently has had a makeover. Roughly 20 new writers joined the in a variety of individual and group blogs, as the website went for a more contemporary design and broader mission, borrowing at times from the playbooks of Slate magazine, Politico and The Atlantic in creating a more dynamic site.[2]

Among the new blogs featured in the magazine are several well-known authors and thinkers, such as Pulitzer Prize-winning military reporter Tom Ricks, international bestseller Stephen Walt and veteran blogger Daniel W. Drezner. Among the new blogs, The Shadow Government serves as a conservative critique to the Obama administration, led by senior editor Christian Brose, Condoleezza Rice's longtime chief speechwriter, and featuring columns by 9/11 commission director Philip Zelikow, ex-senior White House aide Peter Feaver, top Pentagon official Dov Zakheim, John McCain's foreign policy adviser Steve Biegun. The Cable, a daily column written by Laura Rozen, a Washington journalist specializing in investigative reports on national security and foreign affairs, includes original coverage and behind-the-scenes news about the making of Washington’s foreign policy in the Obama era.

The magazine's top editors include Moisés Naím and Susan Glasser.

Foreign Policy publishes the annual Globalization Index, and Failed State listing. Its report "Inside the Ivory Tower" provides an annual comprehensive ranking of professional schools in international relations.

National Policy

Simple English

A country's foreign policy (also called the international relations policy) is a set of goals about how the country will work with other countries economically, politically, socially and militarily. Foreign policy also involves dealing with groups that are not countries but that are still important. These are called non-state actors, and might include religious groups, large companies, or even terrorist groups. The study of foreign relations is known as foreign policy analysis (FPA).
