Global Horizons
New inter-disciplinary journal produced by Global Studies students at Sussex

Global HorizonsThis journal is a space of representation and recognition, demonstrating to students and non-students alike the exemplar works that are produced by undergraduate Global Studies students at the University of Sussex. The journal is inter-disciplinary by the nature of its diverse contributors, reflecting the pedagogical and methodological approach the School of Global Studies adopts more generally. Through compiling papers that deal with pressing global issues in such a way, we seek to generate and disseminate knowledge and understanding that can make a difference, for a fairer, safer, more sustainable and more inclusive world.
