Here are the editorial principles and approach that inform what we publish:
WPR is strictly nonpartisan with regard to political party affiliation or allegiance and has no animating political agenda.
However, WPR can be broadly described as liberal internationalist, combining a reality-based approach that recognizes the need for all the tools and instruments of statecraft with a preference for diplomacy and multilateralism in support of a rules- and norms-based global order.
We begin with respect for the social, economic and political realities of the countries we cover, separate from U.S. interests.
We try to provide granular analysis with enough depth for specialized readers, while putting things in context to remain relevant for observers of other issue areas and countries.
We pay close attention to the regional and multilateral implications of international affairs.
We are always hungry for new angles and approaches.
We try to contextualize important trends, but also cover topics that are deeper in the weeds for specific issue areas like education, immigration and drug policy.
