Thanks for your interest in contributing to Foreign Policy Rising!

We’re looking to publish a diverse range of voices and welcome voluntary submissions on any topic related to international politics or foreign policy. All submissions must be original and exclusive to Foreign Policy Rising. Please also note that the articles we publish are the authors’ own opinions and do not necessarily reflect the views of Foreign Policy Rising or its editors.

Wondering what to write about? Your article could be a reaction to a recent foreign policy decision, an international political event or a global trend. You could analyze a pressing international challenge or offer some potential solutions. The main criteria is that you write about something that moves you.

Articles should be around 800 words and written in your own voice. They should read like op-ed pieces rather than academic articles. We aim to reach a broad audience of readers, from academia to the general public, so that means avoiding excessive jargon.

Before you begin writing, send a short pitch to outlining your main ideas. We’ll offer you some advice or tell you to go ahead and get started.
