Project Syndicate publishes and syndicates commentary and analysis on topics including global affairs, economics, finance, and development. It has hundreds of member publications in more than 150[citation needed] countries, amounting to a total circulation of nearly 70 million copies.[citation needed] RealClearWorld named Project Syndicate one of the top five world news sites for 2012.[2]

Project Syndicate, which Ezra Klein described as “the world’s smartest op-ed page,”{{citation needed|date=June 2013}} provides commentaries on a wide range of topics, from economic policy and strategies for growth worldwide to human rights, Islam, and the environment. It also offers monthly series dedicated to Africa, Europe, Asia, and Latin America, as well as to China and Russia.

A non-profit organization, Project Syndicate relies primarily on contributions from newspapers in developed countries[citation needed], which make up roughly 60% of its membership base, to enable it to offer its services at reduced rates, or for free, to newspapers in countries where journalistic resources may not be readily available. Project Syndicate has also received grants from the Open Society Foundation, The Politiken Foundation in Denmark, Die Zeit Ebelin, and Gerd Bucerius Foundation.[citation needed]

Project Syndicate translates its columns from English into several languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian, and is published in numerous other languages.
