Cover for: War is personal

Eurozine welcomes its newest partner, Gwara Media, to the network with an article written on residency by the Ukrainian organisation’s editor-in-chief. Is media fatigue an inevitable fallout of war?

Cover for: How fetal politics stole Americans’ reproductive rights

The US Supreme Court has overturned two landmark cases that protected a woman’s rights over her own body for 50 years.

And what will be the outcome of this new ruling?

And media workers are culpable too, for abusing the genre of breaking news reporting to magnetise audiences and advertisers, doing it at a great symbolic cost.

How Russians are destroying national diversity in Ukraine

Afina, Usein, Maria, Jasim – a Greek Roumean, a Crimean Tatar, a Swede and a Turkish-Meskhetian, all from Ukraine, all living on the edge – when the attack on nationals, labelled minorities, is life-threatening, calling out the names of those who are in danger recognizes their plight and diversity.
