The web magazine Global Politics was founded in 2001 and is one of the first Czech Internet journals focusing on international relations and European studies. The main goal of the project has been to offer readers scholarly views on developments in political science, international relations, the European Union and politically important topics and events. The magazine is a student project that speaks to students of relevant social sciences to foster their interest in politics.
Global Politics offers an opportunity to publish articles, studies, discussions and reviews and it actively joins current scholarly discussions.
The magazine was founded by a group of students from the Faculty of Social Studies and the Faculty of Law at Masaryk University who wanted to develop and foster scholarly discussions of mentioned topics in the Czech Republic. Global Politics has been supported by International Institute of Political Science of Masaryk University since January 2003 and cooperates with its Student Section on numerous projects such as “Focused on EU”. GP changed the graphic design of its web page in January 2006 when the new logo was created and again in March 2012.
