Melbourne hosts new Global 21 magazine

June 13 / 111

The Melbourne Globalist, a student-oriented international relations magazine, was launched on Friday 31 May.

Primarily based at the University, the magazine will provide a voice for students to contribute to discussion of international affairs and Australia’s role in the world. 

Nicholas Fabbri, founder and Editor-In-Chief who is also completing his Bachelor of Arts at Melbourne, said the magazine would promote student engagement and provide insight into international relations.

“We hope to develop a successful, student-run publication which facilitates meaningful engagement, and which provides real opportunities for students to gain practical journalism and editing experience outside the classroom,” Mr Fabbri said. 

The online magazine is part of the Global 21 network of international affairs magazines, established at Yale University, which includes universities worldwide such as Peking University.

“We are part of a truly global network and we relish the opportunity for our staff to develop their personal and professional networks accordingly,” Mr. Fabbri said.

Senior members from the Centre for Advancing Journalism, the Melbourne Law School, the School of Social and Political Sciences joined Mr Malcolm Fraser and US Consul General Mary Burce Warlick at the magazine’s official launch. 

“This is an indication of the strong levels of support for independent, student-led media platforms which offer students the opportunity to engage with the big issues on the international stage,” Mr Fabbri said.

“We hope this is the beginning of a very productive and engaging student-led publication, and look forward to growing over the course of 2013.”
