About the Author

2017 05 11  korea-china  II  Isaac-Stone-Fish

Isaac Stone Fish is a senior fellow at the Asia Society in New York City, on sabbatical from Foreign Policy Magazine. While at Foreign Policy, he was the publication's Asia Editor: he managed coverage of the region, and wrote about the politics, economics, and international affairs of China, Japan, and North Korea. Formerly a Beijing correspondent for Newsweek, Stone Fish spent seven years living in China prior to joining Foreign Policy. While there, he traveled widely in the region and in the country, visiting every Chinese province except lonely Jiangxi.

His views on international affairs have been widely quoted, including in MSNBC, NPR, CBS, the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Atlantic, Slate, The Guardian, PRI, the BBC, the Sydney Morning Herald, Talking Points Memo, and Al-Jazeera, among others; and in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese media. An experienced public speaker, Stone Fish has given talks at Columbia, Cornell, Duke, the University of Pennsylvania, Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management, the University of Washington in Seattle, University of Groningen in Holland, Fudan University (in Mandarin), among other universities; and at conferences, think tanks, and events around the world.

Besides publishing in Foreign Policy, where he has worked for the last four years, Stone Fish’s articles have also appeared in The New York Times, the Washington Post, The Atlantic, The Guardian, Slate, The Daily Beast, Time, and the Los Angeles Times. While in Beijing, he served on the board of the Foreign Correspondent’s Club of China, and, when the sky wasn’t the color of glue, was an avid runner.

A fluent Mandarin speaker, Stone Fish is a graduate of Columbia University, where he studied Chinese literature. He is also a Global Shaper at the World Economic Forum, and a non-resident senior fellow at the University of Nottingham's China Policy Institute. In his spare time, he is writing a novel on North Korea.
