Aims & Scope

Orbis®, the Foreign Policy Research Institute's quarterly journal of world affairs, was founded in 1957 as a forum for policymakers, scholars, and the informed public who sought an engaging, thought-provoking debate beyond the predictable, conventional journals of that time. Nearly half a century later, Orbis continues to offer informative, insightful, and lively discourse on the full range of topics relating to American foreign policy and national security, as well as in-depth analysis on important international developments. Orbis readers always know the stories behind the headlines.

Orbis is a publication of the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI). For more information on the FPRI please vist the Institute's website at click here
