Orbis - A Journal of World Affairs (ISSN 0030-4387) is a quarterly journal, founded in 1957 by the Foreign Policy Research Institute as a 'forum for policymakers, scholars, and the informed public who sought an engaging, thought-provoking debate beyond the predictable, conventional journals of that time'. [1] The journal is still assocated with the FPRI but is published by Elsevier.

Orbis works towards ensuring that they 'offer informative, insightful, and lively discourse on a full range of topics relating to American foreign policy and national security, as well as in-depth analysis on important international developments.' [1]

Orbis is a publication of the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI). Founded in 1955, FPRI is a non-profit organisation that is devoted to bringing the insights of scholarship to bear on the development of policies that advance U.S. national interests. [2]
