International Policy Digest (IPD) is an independently run and operated foreign policy website which also tackles U.S. politics. On any given week you will find articles on our website that address the Asia Pacific region but also address the importance of the upcoming U.S. presidential election. Many writers around the globe have difficulty finding a medium where they can express themselves in the written form. International Policy Digest strives to offer a voice to these concerned citizens. Because International Policy Digest does not seek to represent any one ideology our many contributors pen articles that seeks to shed light on little known or much discussed stories that either have regional or global significance.
Originally launched in 2011 as a personal blog of John Lyman, the Editor-in-Chief, he realized that this platform had an opportunity to grow and prosper in the new media environment. What started out with just a few readers from around the United States, International Policy Digest has developed a significant base of readership in over 195 countries.
