Submission Guidelines

The CIC welcomes submissions of blogs on a wide range of topics related to contemporary issues in international relations. We seek to publish engaging and substantive analysis of foreign policy, international events and global trends.

Our blogs are typically 700–1,200 words and should be analytical in focus. Authors are relied upon to fact check their contributions, and are encouraged to hyperlink to any facts or quotations as appropriate.

All submissions will be considered on a rolling basis and should be accompanied by the author’s full contact details and a short bio.

For examples of our preferred style and content, please explore our archives.

We are open to possibilities for cross-publication with institutional or personal websites. Submissions, editorial inquiries or brief pitches for articles should be sent to
