The Washington Quarterly was founded in 1978 at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, one of the top think tanks in the United States. TWQ's original publisher was Routledge.

In 2014, TWQ came under the patronage of the George Washington University, via the Elliott School of International Affairs. Concurrently, TWQ's publishing agreement with Routledge was ended and it began to be published by Taylor & Francis.
