Contribute to Global Politics

Global Politics Magazine provides a space for analysts, writers, scholars and international relations professionals to make a full contribution to political debate. Our authors have been published in the Washington Post, the LA Times, the Scotsman, Huff Post, the Daily Beast and the Independent. We welcome articles on international relations, history, law, politics, constitutionalism or public policy. The vast majority of our readers are in the US and UK, but we are also read in dozens of countries around the world each month. Articles should therefore be relevant to the concerns and interests of a global readership even when focused on a specific national or regional topic.

I Want to Write for Global Politics Magazine – What Next?

Business and professional people, students, academics and international relations practitioners read Global Politics. It is therefore important that our articles cater for this very broad and intellectually curious readership. Our readers want to be challenged, provoked, surprised and even entertained by articles which offer them cogent analysis and informed argument. They don’t want long-winded anecdotal pieces, insider jargon, narrow topics, or excessively technical writing.

The perfect Global Politics article should strike a balance between being a reference point for debate among international relations specialists and practitioners while also engaging with and appealing to a more general interest reader.

We welcome all articles relating to contemporary international affairs, but we particularly encourage those which seek to highlight and introduce new ideas and fresh analysis into the political debate.

If you would like to contribute, please check our style guide and email either the submission or a brief outline of the proposed article to us at or

Editorial Policy

Global Politics Magazine is an open forum for thought and debate. We aim to be politically, socially and geographically inclusive in the articles we commission and receive.

Any particular article will embody the political views of its author but will not represent the political view of Global Politics Magazine.

We hope that different perspectives can inform and illuminate others for a vibrant and inclusive debate.

Global Politics Magazine is a free forum for debate. Freedom of speech demands respect for individuals – equal respect. Therefore we ask that you respect standards of legality and propriety when contributing to the Magazine.

If you put your name to an article, the work must be yours. Please ensure that ideas from other writers are cited through the use of hyperlinks or references.
