Foreign Policy was founded in late 1970 by Samuel P. Huntington​, professor of Harvard University​, and his friend Warren Demian Manshel to give a voice to alternative views about American foreign policy at the time of the Vietnam War.[5][6] Huntington hoped it would be "serious but not scholarly, lively but not glib".[7]
In early 1978, after six years of close partnership, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace acquired full ownership of Foreign Policy. In 2000, a format change was implemented from a slim quarterly academic journal to a bimonthly magazine. It also launched international editions in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America.
In September 2008, Foreign Policy was bought by The Washington Post Company (now Graham Holdings Company​).​[8] In 2012, Foreign Policy grew to become the FP Group—an expansion of Foreign Policy magazine to include and FP Events.[9]
According to its submissions guidelines, Foreign Policy articles "strike the balance" between informed specialist research and general readability, and tend to be written in plain rather than "wonky" language.​[10]
Editorial stance​[​edit​]
Foreign Policy endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US presidential election. This was the first time in its 50-year history the magazine endorsed a candidate.​[11]
Since 2003, Foreign Policy has been nominated for eight National Magazine Awards, winning six: three for its print publication and three for its digital publication at FP is the only independent magazine that has won consecutive digital national magazine awards every year from being established in 2009.​[​citation needed]
Foreign Policy won the National Magazine Award for Outstanding Achievement and General Excellence in the under 100,000 circulation category.​[12]
Foreign Policy's "The Best Defense" column authored by Tom Ricks received the Digital National Magazine Award for best blog.[19]
