Orbis is the Foreign Policy Research Institute's (FPRI) quarterly journal of world affairs. Published by Elsevier on behalf of the FPRI, an American think tank,[1] it was founded in 1957[2] by Robert Strausz-Hupé as a forum for policymakers, scholars, and the public who sought debate that they believed was not found in the journals of that time.[citation needed]

Nearly half a century later, Orbis publishes articles on topics relating to American foreign policy and national security and analysis of international developments. The journal is edited by Mackubin Thomas Owens (Naval War College). Other recent editors include James Kurth (Swarthmore College, 2005–2007), David Eisenhower (University of Pennsylvania, 2001–2004), and Walter A. McDougall (University of Pennsylvania, 1995–2001).[1]
