Realist Review is an online media outlet that seeks to provide a fresh perspective on foreign policy. For the past several decades, American foreign policy discourse has been dominated by proponents of greater militaristic and political involvement abroad. The one-sided and interventionist nature of the current debate impedes serious analysis and sound policy making, as the consequences of America’s actions in the Middle East have revealed. We believe that the only way to avoid repeating our errors is to have a more open, honest, and informed conversation about foreign policy.

At Realist Review, we aim to foster intellectual discussion by providing a platform for college students and recent graduates to share their opinions on foreign policy. We want to empower voices who favor diplomacy over war and restraint over confrontation. We want to promote intelligent analyses of global issues. Most of all,we want to provide you with engaging commentary and passionate journalism about the world and the role America plays in it, as seen by its youth.
