openDemocracy offers in-depth news analysis and commentary from a pro-Democracy, pro-Human Rights perspective.
openDemocracy is committed to human rights and democracy. We aim to ensure that marginalised views and voices are heard. We believe facilitating argument and understanding across geographical boundaries is vital to preventing injustice.
Beyond and behind the headlines
We won’t tell you what to think. We offer you a spectrum of ideas, from the people who have lived through the events, from those on the ground making a difference, from scholars with expert knowledge. In-depth, independent, inside.
Our writers provide you with the background information you need to challenge the politics of any place. Every day, we publish new articles and opinions.
