ForeignPolicy is a bimonthly American magazine founded in 1970 by Samuel P. Huntington and Warren Demian Manshel.
Originally, the magazine was a quarterly. Its most notable feature was its unusual physical format: pages printed in a narrow 4" x 11" size, with a durable yet not hardback cover.
Under editor-in-chief Moisés Naím (1996–2010), Foreign Policy changed from an academic quarterly in the 1990s to a bimonthly glossy, winning the 2009, 2007, and 2003 National Magazine Award for General Excellence. The topics it covers include global politics, economics, integration and ideas. On September 29, 2008, The Washington Post Company announced that they had purchased Foreign Policy from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. It also has a website.
Foreign Policy's contributors include: Pulitzer Prize-winning military reporter Tom Ricks, international bestseller Stephen Walt, veteran blogger Daniel W. Drezner, Christian Brose (Condoleezza Rice's longtime chief speechwriter), 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, and Josh Rogin (a Washington journalist specializing in investigative reports on national security and foreign affairs).
Foreign Policy publishes the annual Globalization Index, and Failed State Index. Its report "Inside the Ivory Tower" provides an annual comprehensive ranking of professional schools in international relations.
