National Affairs, Inc.

National Affairs, Inc. is a quarterly and online journal of essays on domestic policy, political economy, society, and political thought. Its writers span the ideological spectrum and frequently engage in robust debates about the state of our democracy.


National Affairs essays feature perspectives on the current challenges to our democracy, including recent attacks on democratic norms and the rule of law. Over the coming year, National Affairs will continue to explore these threats to our governing institutions and will promote public discussion about their implications by featuring the writings of prominent emerging voices from diverse ideological backgrounds in a series of public and private events. These thought-leaders will discuss the challenges facing our democracy in the current political climate and alternative paths forward.
