Who we are

Global Souths Hub is a news and resource site developed alongside the leading academic journals Third World Quarterly (TWQ) and Central Asian Survey (CAS)

The Hub shares and connects the voices of scholar-activists, researchers, policymakers and practitioners, as well as anyone interested in the Global Souths’ diverse countries and cultures, politics, and histories. 

We disseminate news, blogs and stories from leading thinkers in Global South studies, as well as complementary content from both TWQ and CAS journals.

Our aims

The Global Souths Hub aims to:

  • Be a source of free, quality content that will share knowledge, and inspire a new generation of Global South scholars.
  • Build collaborations between academics and early career researchers, editors and authors, and bloggers and readers.
  • Prompt critical conversations by inspiring debate and reflection.

Why Global Souths?

Global South research focuses on the countries and regions in Africa, Asia and the Pacific Islands, Central Asia and the Caucasus, the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, and their diasporic communities. We use the additional ‘s’ in ‘Souths’ to reflect the diversity of the field, and to highlight that there is not just one ‘Global South’ identity, culture and history, but many. 

At the Global Souths Hub we recognise that Global South Studies is a rapidly evolving, interdisciplinary field, and we hope to be a platform that will foster debate and facilitate reflection.

  • art, culture and sport
