EDITORIAL INTERNSHIP AT THE WORLD POLICY JOURNAL
World Policy Journal, one of the leading US publications in global affairs, is seeking editorial interns for the summer of 2013. Interns will have broad editorial responsibility contributing to The World Policy Blog, assisting in production of the print magazine including visual elements, and assisting the Editor, David A. Andelman, who has had wide experience as a foreign correspondent for The New York Times and CBS News, and as executive editor of Forbes.com.
The Journal's pages are distinguished by articles written in a lively, non-academic style, coming from strong points of view that transcend the traditional foreign-versus-domestic policy divide. It runs policy articles that present a well-supported argument and offer provocative policy recommendations; essays that consider (and reconsider) such issues as immigration, exile, and ethnicity; articles that provide insight into a historical era, event, or person; and articles that illuminate cultural change and cross-cultural influences; profiles that comment on the political or cultural context of which the subject is a part; book reviews; and reportage from regions or on subjects not widely covered in the general media.
World Policy Journal is the flagship publication of the World Policy Institute, a non-partisan source of informed policy leadership for more than four decades, develops and champions innovative policies that require a progressive and global point of view. In an increasingly interdependent world, WPI focuses on complex challenges that demand cooperative policy solutions to achieve: an inclusive and sustainable global market economy, engaged global civic participation and effective governance, and collaborative approaches to national and global security.
