The Stanley Center published Courier magazine from 1989-2020 to share with concerned global citizens around the world information and perspectives gained in the course of our work.
“The inspiration for this new periodical comes from a realization that we at the foundation are exposed to a lot of information worth sharing but have had no good means for doing so.”
When our longtime chairman and president, the late Dick Stanley, wrote those words in the inaugural edition of Courier magazine more than three decades ago, not even visionaries could not have imagined the tools we have for sharing information with the world today.
Through all that time, we continue to believe that independent, accurate journalism and the role journalists and the media play build better-informed societies, more-accountable institutions, and effective global governance. We live this core value through our partnerships within the journalism and media community and the opportunities we provide journalists to report effectively on critical issues of peace and security.
Over the many years, readers joined us in celebrating the value of good journalism by utilizing Courier to spark new conversations in their homes, schools, and communities, and we are pleased to be able to share the archive of the magazine’s 96 issues below.
