  • All articles will require a short submission statement of 3-5 sentences.

  • Use the article title as the submission title. Do not editorialize the title or add your own commentary to the article title.

  • On this subreddit, we encourage long, in-depth submissions. Submissions should not be news articles that merely provide quick updates on current events; instead they should include background information and an explanation as to why the events they describe are occurring.

  • Submissions should not be about individual country's domestic policy. Instead, they should be about relationships between different countries and/or relevant international organizations. Things like breakaway politics are permitted in this subreddit, as they are relevant to and could effect the geopolitical system.

  • Submissions are strongly encouraged to come from reputable sources. Check out the sidebar for examples of good source material. When posting from a lesser known source, please check whether the authors have some sort of qualification demonstrating they are knowledgeable of the subjects they discuss.

  • Sources that include (or solely contain) maps, statistics, or other multimedia (videos, interviews, primary sources, etc.) are permitted and even encouraged in this subreddit.

  • We encourage discussion and welcome anyone to pose hypotheses and ask questions. We allow self-posts.

  • We encourage comments to be cited.

  • Blogspamming will result in a ban. Please make sure that you are not submitting a link that merely copies and pastes an article from another source.

  • Please be respectful to your fellow redditors. Do not cuss. Follow rediquette and treat others with courtesy. We do not tolerate sexism, racism, anti-semitism, homophobia, bigotry, or any other forms of intolerance towards different nationalities, religions, or other social groups.

  • If you wish to promote your own site contact the moderators for the self-promotion policy.

  • This is not a place to discuss conspiracy theories! There are other communities for that.

  • Memes, puns, and off-topic jokes will be removed. We pride ourselves in being a community that values quality and insight. Memes and puns offer neither.

  • Thanks for reading all the rules, and welcome to our digital agora!
