Journal of International Affairs
J Int Aff
Published/Hosted by School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University.
The Journal of International Affairs was established in 1947 as a nonprofit organization affiliated with the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. As the second-oldest publication in the field of international relations, the Journal possesses a distinguished history. In the aftermath of the Second World War, the founders of the Journal saw a need for a publication that would serve as a forum for debate on global issues. With its distinct single-topic format, the Journal has covered the crucial topics of over a half-century of international affairs and has maintained a unique grasp on the constantly changing world order. In the 1960s and 1970s, the Journals focus shifted from such themes as revolutionary change and political theory to issues such as détente and the rise of technology. The Journal now covers often-conflicting trends such as regional integration and globalization and continues to reflect the evolution of world issues. Journal contributors, which are drawn from a diverse group of academics and practitioners, have included Hannah Arendt, Willy Brandt, Zbigniew Brzezinski, W. Averall Harriman, John Kerry, Margaret Mead, Paul Volcker, Kenneth Waltz, Domingo Cavallo and Jimmy Carter. Today, international affairs encompasses an ever-expanding field of study and discussion and the world system is currently undergoing extraordinary shifts in political and economic boundaries. As it has from its inception, the Journal of International Affairs will continue to examine and define the new era that lies before us.
