New York, NY (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
On August 21, 2013, Yaffa Fredrick was named the new Managing Editor for World Policy Journal, assuming a position held previously by Christopher Shay.
“A great big World Policy welcome to Yaffa Fredrick, World Policy Journal’s amazing new Managing Editor, who comes to us from MTV and mtvU,” tweeted Editor David A. Andelman, who has served at the helm of the magazine for the last six years.
World Policy Journal, a quarterly print publication with a growing digital presence, will publish its first issue under Yaffa Fredrick’s leadership this December 2013. The issue will focus on Asia, and more specifically the complex politics dividing and uniting China and India—the two hegemonic powers at the center of its growth.
In her new role, Yaffa Fredrick will be responsible for recruiting quality writers from across the globe and working with them to create stories that both define and transcend borders, bringing a new audience to the work of this distinguished publication.
World Policy Journal’s pages are defined by articles written in a lively, non-academic style, presenting strong points of view that transcend the traditional foreign-versus-domestic policy divide. It runs policy articles that present a well-supported argument and offer provocative policy recommendations; essays that consider (and reconsider) such issues as immigration, exile, and ethnicity; articles that provide insight into a historical era, event, or person; profiles that comment on the political or cultural context of which the subject is a part; and reportage from regions or on subjects not widely covered in the general media.
