The Harvard International Review is a quarterly journal and website of international relations published by the Harvard International Relations Council at Harvard University. The 'HIR' offers commentary on global developments in politics, economics, business, science, technology, and culture, as well as interviews with prominent global leaders and reviews of books and documentaries.


The magazine is composed of the following sections: Features, Perspectives, World in Review, Global Notebook, Interviews, Books & Reviews, and Conferences. The website features exclusive content and active blogs on current events.[1]

The HIR has a readership of over 30,000.[2]


The HIR was founded in 1979 by a group of undergraduate students in the Harvard International Relations Council,[3] both allowing students to write analysis on foreign affairs in an academic and journalistic forum, and inviting contributions from prominent figures in international relations. It was initially published monthly, but underwent a number of format changes.
