Journal of Global Dialogue

GLOBAL DIALOGUE is a new quarterly journal published by the Centre for World Dialogue. It is dedicated to promoting the exchange of ideas on a broad range of international issues, social, political, economic and cultural. 

As its name suggests, Global Dialogue aims to encourage debate. It will be a forum for the expression of differing or opposing viewpoints with the goal of encouraging greater understanding and tolerance. 

Global Dialogue's perspective is truly global. The journal will not confine its gaze to any one particular part of the world, but will examine conflicts and issues wherever they arise. It will also seek to illuminate the forces at work internationally that are shaping today's world. 

The journal reflects the Centre's philosophy that conflicts can be prevented more effectively through engagement and discussion than through sanctions, containment and the threat of force.
