App Description

The World Today offers the best and brightest insights on current affairs in an increasingly unpredictable world. Founded in 1945, the magazine presents authoritative analysis from Chatham House, the renowned think tank, on a broad range of global issues, including politics, security, business, health, technology and cultural risk.

In an attractively designed format with striking illustrations, it provides vital background for diplomats, risk analysts, business strategists, academics and all those curious about the world we live in.

The World Today, published six times a year, goes to subscribers in more than eighty different countries; in governments, business, the media, schools and universities. Many hundreds of libraries also find it essential.

In the free trial issue, read about the lost art of leadership. Researchers explain why business executives, government ministers and senior officials are failing to cope with a fast-changing world and what they need to do to manage the new reality we are living in. Also, a free-thinking ambassador sketches the digital future of diplomacy, how the Gulf countries are coping with low oil prices, the Asian arms race, the UN’s plans for Somalia, and the politics of a handshake.
