Cover of Foreign Policy's November/December 2014 issue, "A WORLD DISRUPTED: 100 Leading Global Thinkers"

Every year, Foreign Policy magazine recognizes the world’s preeminent thought leaders in its annual issue, "100 Leading Global Thinkers". The list, started in 2009, has become one of Foreign Policy‍ '​s most-read features. Honorees include a wide range of leaders, advocates, innovators, artists, government officials, and visionaries from around the world.

The editors of Foreign Policy select the 100 Global Thinkers based on their standout contributions over the past year and their ability to translate ideas into action that change and shape the world.

Since 2011, Foreign Policy has honored these leaders at an annual celebration, simultaneous to the release of the print issue, in Washington, D.C.
