Welcome to Local & Global, the magazine for new debates and fresh ways of thinking. Written and compiled by staff and students within the School of Social Sciences and Global Studies (SSGS), you’ll find ideas on the world we live in, as well as teaching and research highlights.
The magazine contains a rich selection of content; issues and debates across the UK and around the world. There’s also news of current research projects, OU/BBC broadcasts, our students and much more.
Local & Global is an annual publication incorporating some of the key areas of research currently driving the SSGS. The first issue of the magazine was in 2020 and this is its fourth year. You can still catch up with the first three issues, if you have missed reading them.
