"The Guardian Weekly" is a weekly newspaper published by the Guardian Media Group, and is one of the world's oldest international newspapers. It was founded with the aim of advancing the cause of democracy in post-war Germany. Its first edition was printed a week after the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, and included the following as a statement of mission: "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".

"The Guardian Weekly" offers a compact digest of four newspapers. It contains articles from "The Guardian" and "The Observer" newspapers in the UK, as well as reports, features and book reviews from "The Washington Post" and articles translated from France's "Le Monde" newspaper.

"The Guardian Weekly" carries a monthly "Learning English" supplement that offers news and classroom aids to teachers of English as a Foreign Language, as well as a guide to the best listening on the BBC World Service. Its fortnightly "Outlook" section focuses on international development issues and the vital part played by NGOs in the field. It also offers the website Guardian Abroad for expatriates.
