Welcome to the first issue of The World Today under my editorship.
I have aimed to deliver the same quality insights and fresh perspectives on international affairs that make the magazine unique.
While much on the following pages will look and feel the same, in the coming months we will be exploring new formats, showcasing new voices and offering more digital content.
Crucial to that mission will be ensuring we are listening to you, our readers. I invite you to email me with any feedback or story ideas – or connect with me on Twitter.
