An Update on Vital Interests

The newsletter is taking a break, but our national security and foreign policy coverage will continue.

Dear Readers of Vital Interests,

I write today with some news on Vital Interests. Our friend and colleague Tom Joscelyn will be taking a leave of absence to pursue another professional opportunity. We will certainly miss him and plan to welcome him back within a year. Tom asked me to pass along his tremendous gratitude to the thousands of Dispatch members who have made Vital Interests a regular part of their news consumption. 

We will continue to cover national security and foreign policy issues with the kind of depth and context you’ve come to expect as readers of Vital Interests and members of The Dispatch. I’d invite you to pay particular attention to the work of Charlotte Lawson, who has been our main reporter on these issues for nearly two years. And we will have exciting news to share soon on new additions to our coverage of these issues and more. Stay tuned.



Steve Hayes is the editor and CEO of The Dispatch.
