About Prospect magazine

Prospect has established itself as a must-read title with key figures in government, journalism, policy making and business.

Political writing for grown-ups, well beyond the party political playpen. 
outstanding political and cultural monthly. 

 Andrew Marr, BBC Presenter  

We regularly cover topics not found in any other magazine or newspaper, and we present those articles in a thought-provoking and challenging way. We hardly ever go with the flow when it comes to reporting and journalism.

People turn to Prospect for the ideas and trends behind the headlines and for a contrarian view of topics.

Its depth sets it apart. Each issue brings together the sharpest minds on the events and ideas that define the modern world. What results is an entertaining, informative and open-minded magazine that mixes compelling argument and clear headed analysis with elegance and vitality in design.

Each issue of Prospect includes head-to-head debates between two writers with opposing views on a subject; roundtable discussions, in which a series of experts with varying views on a given topic meet for a discussion, an edited transcript of which is published in the magazine; and interviews with major political and cultural figures.
