Foreign Policy is a magazine and daily website about global politics published by The Slate Group, a division of the Washington Post Co.

Foreign Policy, based in Washington, D.C., prints seven issues per year and offers digital subscriptions at the same price. The magazine employs a staff of 30.

In early 2009, the magazine relaunched its website to serve as a daily complement to the print product. The site is home to Passport, its editors blog, as well as a stable of opinion bloggers. The site design and analysis-heavy reporting is not unlike that of its sister publication, Slate.

Foreign Policy was among the first magazines to repackage its stories in the form of paid ebooks. In September 2010, it compiled a series of reporter dispatches from Afghanistan into a title on Amazon’s Kindle store for $2.99. In January 2011, the editors compiled a year of reporting into an ebook about the Arab revolution for $4.99.

Foreign Policy has a free iPhone app called FP Wide Angle, which features weekly photo essays.
