Americas Quarterly, The Policy Journal for Our Hemisphere (AQ), is a magazine dedicated to policy analysis and debate of economics, finance, social development, and politics in the Western Hemisphere. Launched in 2007, AQ reaches over 17,000 readers. AQ presents itself as a balanced, authoritative, and accessible magazine that responds to issues facing the region and brings a diverse set of key players to the table. The editorial mission is to engage a new generation of political, economic and social leaders in a discussion of future policy alternatives and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas. Americas Quarterly has attracted contributions from leading figures in the region such as Bill Gates, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Ricardo Lagos, José Antonio Ocampo, Richard Feinberg, and Admiral James Stravidis. Past issues have focused on health care; trafficking and transnational crime; poverty, inequality, and social mobility; and immigration.
AQ Online brings updates to the magazine in the form of "Web Exclusive" articles, multimedia features, and daily blog posts from contributing bloggers across the hemisphere.
