Our Magazine

New Internationalist magazine offers sharp analysis and global coverage of today’s most urgent issues. From conflict and migration, to climate change and democracy, we dig that bit deeper to place headline stories in their proper political, social and economic context.

Our network of writers brings alternative perspectives. And with more than 50 years at the forefront of independent media, we have earned a reputation for thoughtful, progressive journalism that gives a human face to the news.

We pride ourselves in covering stories that the mainstream media often ignores, instead highlighting voices from the Global South.
