As we move into our third year (and after a brief pause), we are pleased to welcome you to issue seven of Global Politics Magazine.

In this issue we feature a selection of articles and blog entries written by young people around the world, with an emphasis on the recent war in Gaza and the global economic crisis. Readers are invited to send their comments via the link published at the end of each article.

We are also pleased to welcome aboard our new director, Felipe Shrieberg who has recently joined our ranks with a vision for great things to come. Jacob Halpin, the founder of Global Politics Magazine, and former director will remain on as an editor and writer.

We'd also like to encourage you to become part of the project. You're certainly not short of options. Either check out our Get Involved page to see what's available, or have a look at the Team Sheet.
