Our views

Young professionals are often an unheard voice in policy discussions. More often than not, however, it is their insights that we need to break hardwired, outdated ideas about foreign policy and transatlanticism. Our Views offers young professionals (ages 18–35) who are patrons of the Atlantic Forum a place to amplify their publications and have their voices heard.

As patron you can submit links of your existing work by emailing our secretariat. We will then put it on the website and include it in a database together with the original publisher and the author's affiliation. When relevant we then push out the piece on social media, mentioning the author, original publisher and author's affiliation - often leading to a resurge in viewership.

Step 0: Become a patron;
Step 1: Send an email with the links to your published work to info@atlantic-forum.com
Step 2: Profit
