Agora publishes work relating to UK foreign policy and international affairs. If you are interested in publishing something, please e-mail one of our research programmes with an idea and they will help you develop this into a blog idea.

Our research programmes cover the topics of Defence & Security, Democracy & Governance, Energy & Climate, Europe, Identities, and Migration. We are always interested in hearing from people with knowledge of additional areas of study who would like to set up a new research group.

These research programmes are responsible for producing and publishing our content, holding events, and organising social meet ups.

We publish work in the following formats:


Shorter opinion pieces, in a more journalistic tone, that convey a clear idea and often respond to current affairs.


Factual pieces, outlining what you need to know on the key issues, events, and debates going on in international affairs.

Policy papers

Longer, more analytical research pieces which make concrete policy proposals for UK policy makers.

Before sending us submissions, please familiarise yourself with our content guidelines, which will tell you what we publish and give you an overview of our editorial process.
