About Us

ONE COUNTRY, the newsletter of the Bahá'í International Community, is a publication of the Office of Public Information of the Bahá'í International Community.

The Bahá'í International Community is an international non-governmental organization which encompasses and represents the worldwide membership of the Bahá'í Faith.

Founded a century and a half ago, the Bahá'í Faith is today among the fastest growing of world religions. With more than five million followers in at least 235 countries and dependent territories, it has become the second-most widespread faith, surpassing every religion but Christianity in its geographic reach. Bahá'ís reside in more than 121,000 localities around the world and they represent a cross section of humanity, coming from virtually every nation, ethnic group, culture, profession and social or economic class. More than 2,100 different ethnic and tribal groups are represented.

In its printed format, ONE COUNTRY is published quarterly. Each 16-page issue contains two or three in-depth feature stories on the United Nations, noteworthy social and economic development projects, environmental efforts or educational programs, along with an editorial that addresses world problems from a Bahá'í point of view. It is published in English, French, Chinese, Russian, German and Spanish, and is currently mailed to more than 30,000 readers in more than 170 countries.

If you are affiliated with the United Nations or another international organization, are involved in government or international development work, are an academic or a researcher, or are a representative of the news media, you may qualify for a free subscription to ONE COUNTRY.
