The Zurich Globalist, founded in November 2011 is an international affairs publication located at the University of Zurich. The magazine is written, edited, and published entirely by students at the university. The mission of the Zurich Globalist is to reflect the in many ways special status of Switzerland. Profiting from four official languages, three of which are included in the magazine, the staff seeks to uphold the Swiss tradition of adopting a global view while staying committed to a local attachment. The first issue, themed “Neutrality in a changing world”, represents this very view. The Zurich Globalist strives to give students the opportunity to express their different perspectives, experiences, and views on global issues.
