About Global Politics

Global Politics Magazine provides a forum where politically interested individuals, journalists, academics, and international relations professionals can exchange insights and develop new approaches both to the study of international relations and to the analysis of emerging political trends. We are read in dozens of countries around the world each month, although most of our readership is located in the US and UK.
