We are one of the most highly regarded international relations journals in the English language. We publish six issues a year.

We publish leading scholars alongside newcomers making their name in the field. During 2020 we are working to ensure that 50 percent of our contributors identify as women.


International Affairs publishes research on all fields of international relations. Our reading lists cover topics including:

  • The Environment
  • The Global Economy
  • Global Health Crises
  • International Law
  • Radicalization and Terrorism
  • War and Conflict
