About Foreign Policy

Foreign Policy was founded in 1970 with the intention of leading a root-and-branch rethink of how the United States engages with other countries. We showcase the smartest ideas and analysis on global affairs, written by experts and practitioners of international relations. Although FP exists on many platforms, including on our website, a quarterly print edition, award-winning podcasts, and through live video journalism, we will always be first and foremost a magazine of politics and ideas, covering parts of the world underserved in other English-language media and bringing a nuanced, global perspective to more familiar stories.

Working at Foreign Policy

We have a preference for candidates in the D.C. area. D.C.-based staff are required to work from the office at least one day a month, with all U.S.-based staff convening in D.C. a few times a year.

Foreign Policy requires that all employees be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Foreign Policy is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to an inclusive environment for all employees. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit, and business need.
