“In difficult and challenging times, such as during the COVID-19 pandemic and its many socio-political and economic consequences, the journal
Global Discourse fulfils salient functions: to continuously reflect and explain social transformation and change from inter- and post-disciplinary perspectives, in systematic detail. Such critical reflection allows scholars and lay-persons alike to distance themselves from their daily emotional involvement, thus providing space for new future mid-term and long-term imaginaries.”

Ruth Wodak is Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Discourse Studies at Lancaster University, UK.

“There is little room for impartial skepticism in our hyper-partisan public policy environment.
Global Discourse is a welcome publication for those who are averse to dogma and willing to unsettle 'consensus views'.”

Richard A. Shweder is Harold Higgins Swift Distinguished Service Professor in the Department of Comparative Human Development at the University of Chicago, US.

“In the future the most transformative research and scholarship is likely to occur at the nexus or intersection between traditional disciplines and professional boundaries.
Global Discourse is arguably the world-leading journal for provoking debates, connecting scholars and redefining how critical social challenges are framed and understood. It is a journal that is shaping the future rather than being stuck in the past.”

Matthew Flinders is Professor of Politics at the University of Sheffield, UK and Vice-President of the Political Studies Association, UK.

“In the spirit of the critical Frankfurt school,
Global Discourse takes seriously the necessity to discuss political themes beyond academic borders and rigidity and gives voice to scholars committed to research as an emancipatory project crossing disciplines and traditions.”

Thomas Lindemann is Professor of Political Science at Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin, France

Global Discourse is more global and more of a discourse than most other academic journals in its fields. Its innovative way to advance the global discourse and the relevance of its topics for a variety of different disciplines make it unique among its peers.”

Alexander Vuving is Professor at Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies, US.
