New student run political journal goes online at Durham

(28 April 2005)

The Society of Government and International Affairs Review at the University of Durham, founded by a group of graduate students from Durham’s School of Government and International Affairs, has launched a new online political journal entitled the GAIA Review today.

Its goal is to provide an outlet for opinion and research pieces by Durham students and alumni on a broad range of political and international issues.

GAIA Review Editor-in-Chief Angelo Salting Goode, a PhD student in International Relations said, ‘We just wanted to provide a forum for political issues of any kind, from any angle, on any issue. We wanted to make something both informative and interesting. We have a lot of bright people here at Durham with interesting ideas and opinions, we just wanted to give that greater exposure.’

The inaugural edition includes topics such as the legitimacy of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Filipino working class culture, statehood for US territories, and European foreign policy.

Managing Editor Ed Lopez said, ‘We received many interesting contributions for this first edition, but the articles we chose covered a wide geographic range, which we thought would be a fitting introduction to the journal.’

The first edition also features articles on a range of other issues, with contributions from Durham students and alumni from a variety of departments and backgrounds.

The Journal is presented in an online format, and can be found at:www.dur.ac.uk/ud.sgia The second edition will be published in the Michaelmas term of next year. The editors would be happy to receive submissions from any member of the University on any political or international issue, guidelines for submissions can be found on the website.
