Australian Foreign Affairs 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 produced by Schwartz Media, publisher of 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. After more than forty years of publishing some of Australia’s most influential authors and journalists, Schwartz Media has a reputation for excellence.
