International Politics and Society (IPS)

International Politics and Society is a young magazine with a much older heritage. Launched in January 2017, the online journal highlights global inequality and brings new perspectives on issues such as the environment, European integration, international relations, social democracy and development policy.  Based in the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftungs Brussels office, International Politics and Society aims to bring the European political debate to a global audience, as well as providing a platform for voices from the Global South. Contributors include leading journalists, academics and politicians, as well policy officers working throughout the FESs global network. 

Internationale Politik und Gesellschaft (IPG)

International Politics and Societys sister publication in Berlin, Internationale Politik und Gesellschaft (IPG), has brought considerable technical and political expertise to the debate on German foreign policy, security policy, overseas development and international relations for over 50 years. Originally a quarterly academic journal dealing with relations between West Germany, the Eastern Bloc and the developing world, the magazine changed its title and format in 1994, along with the global power shift that followed the collapse of the Iron Curtain. IPG went online in 2012. The magazine has seen contributions from world-renowned decision-makers, from Willy Brandt and Jacques Delors to David Miliband and Helen Clark.
