The Guardian Weekly is a weekly British-based (London) English Language newspaper published by the Guardian Media Group and is one of the world's oldest international newspapers. It has readers in 173 countries. It was founded with the aim of spreading progressive British ideas into America after the First World War. Its first edition was printed a week after the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, and included the following as a mission statement: "We aim at presenting what is best and most interesting in the Guardian, what is most distinctive and independent of time, in a compact weekly form".[1]

The Guardian Weekly draws on the editorial resources of The Guardian and also contains articles from The Observer and The Washington Post and articles translated from France's Le Monde newspaper.

The Guardian Weekly is printed in three locations: United Kingdom, United States and Australia. The paper's circulation is 122,828, which is the second-highest of any UK-based global weekly,[2] behind The Economist (circulation 1.4 million),[3] and it has a readership of almost 200,000.

The paper's readers include many world statesmen, including the late President of the United States since Jimmy Carter not to subscribe to The Guardian Weekly.[5] The 14 edition of the paper in September 2006 was banned in Egypt for publishing articles insulting both Islam and Prophet Mohammed.[6]
