About Us

Founded in 1975 and published biannually, The Fletcher Forum of World Affairs is the student-managed foreign policy journal at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. The publication provides a broad, interdisciplinary platform for analysis of legal, political, economic, environmental, and diplomatic issues in international affairs.

The editorial board of The Fletcher Forum of World Affairs believes that the publication’s audience values and expects the inclusion of conflicting viewpoints. The publication’s title, The Forum, suggests a public meeting place for open discussion.

In this spirit, The Forum website hosts online-only articles by a wider range of authors and allows authors and readers to engage in dialogue through comments on articles. The Forum is a place for open professional exchanges across institutions and continents. We welcome participation by academics, practitioners, and students from across the globe.

The views and opinions expressed in the journal are solely those of individual authors and should not be regarded as reflecting any official opinion or position of The Fletcher Forum of World Affairs, Tufts University, or its faculty.

The ideas expressed in the articles posted on The Fletcher Forum are solely those of the authors and do not in any way reflect the positions and/or ideas of their respective employers, unless otherwise noted.
