From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Foreign Policy In Focus (FPIF) is a project of the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC. FPIF describes itself as a "Think Tank Without Walls"[1] that brings together over 600 writers, scholars, academics, artists and activists to connect research and action on United States foreign policy.

FPIF was started in 1996 and has published scores of articles, reports, policy briefs, and outreach material, as well organized events and participated in numerous campaigns. The stated purpose of FPIF's work is the maxim that "U.S. security and world stability are best advanced through a commitment to peace, justice and environmental protection as well as economic, political, and social rights"[1].



Foreign Policy In Focus started in 1996 as a joint project between the Institute for Policy Studies and the Interhemispheric Resource Center based in Silver City, New Mexico. The first two co-directors were Tom Barry and Martha Honey. The first policy brief was written by Barry, entitled, "Protecting Human Rights". The first book that FPIF produced was entitled, "Global Focus: A New Foreign Policy Agenda 1997-1998"[2]
