Global Brief is a top-tier international affairs magazine with a heavy global readership. It was founded in 2009. Based in Toronto and publishing quarterly in print and online out of the Institute for 21st Century Questions, GB features the original works of leading and rising-star writers on world affairs writ large – international strategic and politics, business, science, culture, movements and trends.
GB has no moral mandate. It is not Anglospheric. It is not sensationalist. Nor is it fatalistic. Rather, it seeks to analyze and explain the world in all its bald complexities, to anticipate different ‘strategic futures,’ and to reflect – with policy relevance and nuance – on ways to address these complexities. GB is read across Canada and around the world, in multiple languages, by prime ministers, presidents and CEOs to lay citizens and students, and so GB seeks to move a very demanding readership (and decision-makers in all countries and spheres) to better and deeper understanding and, where possible, to practical solutions to inelegant problems.
GB’s new, popular website, www.globalbrief.ca, builds on the content of the physical magazine with multilingual expert analytical blogs (GB Geo-Blogs) to encourage high-level world affairs debates and discussions beyond conventional global linguistic barriers. These Geo-Blogs regularly bring many thousands of otherwise ‘untouchable’ readers from around the planet, from mother countries and diasporic communities alike, to www.globalbrief.ca.
The site also has regular GB videos and micro-lectures on a wide array of current topics in national and international politics and policy, an editor’s blog, GB’s social media feeds across several platforms, and the entire archive of GB’s award-winning art.
Distribution of the prestigious print version of GB includes in-store sales in top stores in Canada (Chapters/Indigo), the US and a half dozen other countries, from Singapore to Brazil, Germany and South Africa, a global paid subscriber base, as well as elite carriage in Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounges at airports around the world and at top conferences and events on all continents.
