Foreign Policy Blogs

Looking for a Few Good Women (and Men, of Course)…

Greetings from Edinburgh! I am so glad that you stopped by our group blog, Women and Foreign Policy. Our motto is “lively commentary on international affairs from women around the world.” We have a special interest in the role of women in political life and, for the lack of a better phrase, women’s issues. Some of our recent guest bloggers have included Jehan Sadat, the former first lady of Egypt, and Tara McKelvey, author of Monstering: Inside America’s Policy on Secret Interrogations and Torture in the Terror War. We know that many of you are knowledgeable and passionate about many of the topics we cover—and the many that we don’t. So we would like to invite you to share your expertise! We especially welcome inquiries from women in early stages of their academic careers who are interested in writing (and learning what’s it like to be edited) for a general audience. If you’re sufficiently intrigued, please contact me at [email protected]. In your note, tell us a little about yourself and propose three topics (a few lines on each is more than enough) for a guest post. Thanks!
