Foreign Policy is a news publication founded in 1970 that is focused on global affairs, current events, and domestic and international policy. It produces content daily on its website, ForeignPolicy.com, 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.[2] Foreign Policy magazine and ForeignPolicy.com are published by The FP Group, 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.

History[edit]

Foreign Policy was founded in 1970 by Samuel Huntington and Warren Demian Manshel. Huntington hoped it would be “serious but not scholarly, lively but not glib.”[3] In 2000, under the ownership of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Foreign Policy transitioned from a quarterly journal to a magazine.

In 2008, Foreign Policy was purchased by the Graham Holdings Company, then called The Washington Post Company.[4] The publication launched international editions in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America. Foreign Policy changed its name to The FP Group in 2012 to include ForeignPolicy.com and FP Events.
