International Viewpoint

International Viewpoint is the English-language online magazine of the Trotskyist reunified Fourth International.[1] It focuses on publishing articles on the political and social situation throughout the world, notably by translating articles into English written by socialists in other languages. Its ISSN is ISSN 0294-2925.

The International also publishes a magazine in French Inprecor. The German-speaking sections produce the German Inprekorr. The Spanish-language Punto de vista internacional site is under the responsibility of the Spanish-speaking sections of the International.

The magazine was established in 1982 to replace Intercontinental Press, which for a brief period had been the common English-language publication of the Fourth International having merged with the English-language Inprecor of the 1970s. In 1995, International Viewpoint absorbed International Marxist Review, the Fourth International's theoretical magazine in English.

The magazine has a network of correspondents in over 50 countries who report on popular struggles, and the debates that are shaping the left. Penelope Duggan edits the magazine.[2] Its editorial board includes two leaders of Socialist Resistance: Terry Conway[3] and Alan Thornett.[4] A key figure in the early years, Phil Hearse,[5] is no longer active, while Greg Tucker[6] was the original webmaster.

In January 2005 International Viewpoint was relaunched as an online magazine supplemented by a pdf edition, which is printed and distributed locally. According to a 2008 letter to subscribers, around 500,000 visits are made to the website every year,[7] up from 250,000 in 2006.[8]
