Australian Foreign Affairs, published by Schwartz Media, is the country’s leading foreign affairs journal. In a world arguably less stable than at any time since World War II, it examines the most significant global issues affecting Australia.

Australian Foreign Affairs is essential reading for those with an interest in key international developments affecting Australia and the region. Its contributors are among Australia’s top thinkers, including Paul Keating, Hugh White, Linda Jaivin, Allan Gyngell, Penny Wong, Margaret Simons, George Megalogenis, Michael Wesley, Kim Beazley, Linda Jakobson and Christos Tsiolkas.

The journal publishes three issues a year – in February, July and October  – and is available to subscribers in print, ebook and app. The website publishes regular online articles and a free weekly email, AFA Weekly, featuring news and insights about crucial world events and their effect on Australia. All these platforms seek to explore and encourage debate on Australia’s place in the world. 

With more than 40 years of experience curating and editing Australia’s most influential writing and journalism, Schwartz Media has a long reputation for excellence. Along with Australian Foreign Affairs, Schwartz publishes the groundbreaking weekend newspaper The Saturday Paper; the country’s leading current affairs magazine, The Monthly; the agenda-setting politics and culture journal, Quarterly Essay; and books under the Black Inc. imprint.
