Washington Quarterly

Washington Quarterly (ISSN 0163-660X) is an academic journal of global affairs that 'analyzes strategic security challenges, changes, and their public policy implications.' [1]

The Washington Quarterly is the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) flagship journal. CSIS is one of the world’s preeminent international policy institutions focused on defense and security; regional stability; and transnational challenges ranging from energy and climate to global development and economic integration. [2] The Journal therefore helps CSIS to promote these policy areas to a wide range of readers.

The Journal addresses topics such as:

  • The U.S. role in the world
  • Rising powers such as China and India
  • Nuclear proliferation challenges including Iran and North Korea
  • Pivotal states such as Pakistan and Turkey
  • The continuing implications of the Arab uprisings in Egypt, Syria and beyond.

The Journal was first published in 1978 and is published by Abingdon MIT Press Journals.
