Politique étrangère is a journal of debate and analysis of major international issues. It is the oldest French journal in this field. The first edition dates back to 1936 under the aegis of Centre d’études de politique étrangère (Centre for the Study of Foreign Policy). Since 1979, it has been edited by Ifri.
Its purpose is to highlight all aspects of the ongoing debates in international relations, to put forward an in-depth analysis of current affairs and to be a stable reference tool for academic circles, decision-makers and the civil society. Each issue includes at least two sections related to an event or a specific dimension of international debate as well as several articles focusing on deciphering topical issues.
In Politique étrangère, much space is devoted to current affairs in international relations that are developed both in French and foreign publications.
