The Yale Globalist
|Editor||Olivia Burton and Micaela Bullard|
The Yale Globalist (also referred to as "The Globalist") is a quarterly undergraduate magazine of international affairs from Yale University. The magazine is written, edited, and published entirely by undergraduate students, and was a finalist for Best Student Magazine at the 2016 Society of Professional Journalists Mark of Excellence Awards for the Northeast region.
Each issue of the The Yale Globalist is centered on a theme: representative examples from past issues include Departures, Common Ground, and Faith. While the magazine publishes four print magazines each academic year, the publication also regularly posts online content and beat blogs from writers with a specialized focus. The magazine's staff also travels abroad on annual student-led reporting trips. In recent years, Globalist writers and editors have written and researched in Vietnam (2014), Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia (2015), and in 2016, Peru.
In 2007, Globalist writers were in Venezuela during the controversial closing of the cable television station RCTV. They also toured oil fields with the state oil company PDVSA and met with key opposition leaders such as Carabobo state governor Henrique Salas Römer. In 2008, the Globalist's staff traveled to Delhi, India, to take a first-hand look at Delhi's economic and political development. In May 2014, Globalist reporters were in Hanoi during the Haiyang Shiyou 981 standoff and the 2014 Vietnam anti-China protests, and writers later traveled to the industrial parks and factories vandalized during the protests. The Globalist has also recently reported from Tanzania, Indonesia, Turkey, Chile, and South Africa.
The Globalist's coverage of Egyptian protests was noted by Forbes and its award for journalism was noted by Huffington Post. Writers' works have been picked up internationally, including Nicolas Jimenez's coverage of the International Monetary Fund's outdated membership makeup, reprinted in Spanish in the Colombian newspaper Portafolio (see List of newspapers in Colombia).
The Yale Globalist is a founding member of Global21, a network of student-run foreign affairs magazines at premier universities around the world (such as fr:The Paris Globalist and the Cambridge Globalist).
