About Us

The Georgetown Journal of International Affairs is the official publication of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.

Our mission is to serve as an academic resource for scholars, business leaders, policy makers, and students of international relations alike, cultivating a dialogue accessible to those with all levels of knowledge about foreign affairs and international politics. We are committed to providing our readership with high caliber content, and in the process present a diverse array of literature penned by some of the most influential names in the field that bridges the gap left between the work done by news outlets and that done by more traditional academic journals.

The first issue of the Journal was published in the spring of 2000. Since then, the Journal has established a unique identity and global reputation. Widely recognized and distributed internationally, the Journal is in continuous expansion.We currently offer an annual peer reviewed edition that features collected academic analysis on rapidly changing domains within the arena of international affairs. Our Online Edition publishes weekly expert commentary and analysis on a wide variety of policy-related topics in international affairs. This includes free weekly interviews with leading practitioners and scholars in the field through our online Five Minutes with an Expert feature.

The Journal is currently distributed in over 300 retail outlets in the United States and to subscribers worldwide. Our core readership is comprised of international affairs professionals, think tanks, embassies, and university libraries around the world. Additionally, the Journal is indexed in major academic hosting services, such as Columbia International Affairs Online, ProQuest, Hein Online, Thomson Gale, and the Public Affairs Information Service. Our articles are regularly excerpted by the Chronicle of Higher Education and PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Executive Digest and frequently used in classrooms from Harvard, Princeton, and Georgetown Universities to the National Defense University.

In 2014, the Journal officially entered into a partnership with Georgetown University Press to collaborate on growing the reach and potential of the publication.
