About The WorldPost

November 1, 2017 at 12:30 PM

The WorldPost, a partnership of the Berggruen Institute and The Washington Post, is an award-winning global media platform that publishes op-eds, features and videos exclusively on The Washington Post. Its mission is to make sense of an interdependent yet fragmenting world by commissioning voices that cross cultural and political boundaries. Nathan Gardels is editor in chief of The WorldPost, and Kathleen Miles is the executive editor, managing daily editorial operations with The WorldPost team in New York and Los Angeles, in coordination with Washington Post editors in Washington D.C.

The WorldPost tends to focus on geopolitical power shifts in the post-American global order, including the rise of China; renovating democracy and new ideas on governance in the digital age; technological innovation as it relates to jobs and society; and advances in genetics, biosciences and artificial intelligence. WorldPost contributors and interviews have included, among many others, Chinese President Xi Jinping; international human rights lawyer Amal Clooney; cellist Yo-Yo Ma; entrepreneur Elon Musk; the head of the U.N. climate summit in Paris, Christiana Figueres; and former Brazilian President Fernando Henrique Cardoso.
