There has never been a more critical time for Australia to contemplate its place in the world. My intention is that Australian Foreign Affairs will serve as a forum for our most adventurous and deepest strategic thinkers to interrogate foreign policy.

— Morry Schwartz, Publisher, Australian Foreign Affairs

 

 

Australian Foreign Affairs is a new journal brought to you by the publishers of Black Inc. and Quarterly Essay. It will be published three times a year, in February, July and October, beginning in October 2017.

 

The world is changing, and so is Australia’s place in it. A large number of general readers are fascinated by the dynamics of a rising China and a disengaging United States, in a world that is arguably less stable than at any time since World War II. AFA will make foreign affairs available and accessible to a large audience, in the way that Quarterly Essays make serious politics popular.

Australian Foreign Affairs will encourage debate and will be open to divergent views. Its style and presentation will be clear, succinct and free of jargon. Its readers will need no other qualification than an interest in significant foreign developments affecting Australia and the region and a curiosity about the possible outcomes and responses.

Australian Foreign Affairs will feature four to five long-form in-depth articles by our best thinkers, as well as reviews and correspondence. Each issue will focus on a particular theme. Articles will be topical and wide-ranging, and often challenge conventional wisdom.
