Charged Affairs is designed to showcase the perspectives and analysis of rising leaders in the field of foreign policy and international affairs. Our belief is that early to mid-career professionals in international affairs are perfectly positioned to combine burgeoning expertise with fresh, original and innovative thinking that will shape the next generation of policy solutions.

Charged Affairs is a publication of Young Professionals in Foreign Policy (YPFP), the premier organization of its kind with a global network of over 15,000 foreign policy professionals. YPFP’s mission is to offer young professionals the opportunity to engage with their peers and the wider foreign policy community, and to help them build the knowledge, skills, exposure and relationships to tackle critical global challenges over the course of their careers.

All YPFP members are welcome to submit content in a variety of formats including articles, interviews, and book reviews after they have read our submission guidelines. If you are not yet a member of YPFP, please apply for membership today.
