Foreign Policy is an American news publication, founded in 1970 and focused on global affairs, current events, and domestic and international policy. It produces content daily on its website,[2] and in six print issues annually.

Foreign Policy is under the leadership of CEO and Editor of The FP Group David Rothkopf, who joined FP in that role 2012 after being a regular contributor to the publication since 1997.[3] Foreign Policy magazine and are published by The FP Group,[4] a division of Graham Holdings Company (formerly The Washington Post Company). The FP Group also produces FP Events, Foreign Policy's events division, launched in 2012.


Foreign Policy was founded in the winter of 1970-71 by Samuel P. Huntington, professor of Harvard University, and his friend Warren Demian Manshel to give a voice to alternative views about American foreign policy at the time of the Vietnam War.[5][6] Huntington hoped it would be "serious but not scholarly, lively but not glib."[7] In the Spring of 1978, after six years of close partnership, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace acquired full ownership of Foreign Policy. In 2000, a format change was implemented from a slim quarterly academic journal to a bi-monthly magazine. Also, it launched international editions in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America.

In September 2008, Foreign Policy was bought by The Washington Post Company (now Graham Holdings Company).[8] In 2012, Foreign Policy grew to become the FP Group – an expansion of Foreign Policy magazine to include and FP Events.[9]


In December 2013, FP expanded and modernized as part of a complete website redesign. The new site was designed to present FP's readers with an expanded array of editorial features and tools.
