Focus and Scope

The Interdisciplinary Journal of Global Institutions Critique (IJGIC) is a peer-reviewed open-access publication for scholars from a variety of backgrounds including Law and Economics, Science and Technology, Political science and Philosophy, with the goal of criticizing global institutions while providing proactive insights towards a global system change.

Subject areas that would be appropriate for inclusion into the journal are:

  • Markets and Financial Institutions

  • Multinational Corporations

  • International Institutions

  • Governments

  • Media

  • Army

  • Academia

Challenges and opportunities that global institutions face in the XXI century and other-related topics are highly solicited. Examples include:

  • Climate Change

  • International Migrations

  • Internet Governance

  • Human Rights

  • Social Well-being

  • Legal and Economic Theories

Submissions should be well-researched critical articles utilizing both sound methodologies and the most current references related to the specific topic. Yet, the Journal also accepts articles and non-peer-reviewed position papers on contemporary issues.

Contact the editor to discuss potential solicitation for non-peer-reviewed work and for any other proposal you may have.

Manuscripts are blindly reviewed by members of the editorial staff or academic reviewers following the highest standards of peer review. If author(s) are willing to, paper will be opened for comments from the community in order to fully exploit the collective intelligence of our community.

Acceptance and publication are conducted on a rolling basis and the goal of IJGIC is to provide writers with an alternative publication experience. In fact, the Journal also provides authors the possibility to publish anonymously or to utilize pseudonyms. This is because it is increasingly difficult and risky to argue against global institutions deficiencies while reaching a global and proactive audience.

About the Journal

IJGIC is an interdisciplinary journal that provides a platform to discuss crisis of global institutions. The journal is founded and sustained by Common Horizon, a community of academics and professionals from the International University College of Turin (IUC).

By connecting young scholars and leading thinkers all over the world, the journal aims to [de]construct mainstream narratives about global institutions in order to promote alternative perspectives and unconventional ideas. The mission of the journal is not only to embrace radical and critical analysis but also to advocate innovative proposals. In short, to destroy constructively.

The journal has also a special interest in theories of institutions, how they relate to cultural practices, political ideologies, economic theories and normative laws, with a strong emphasis on science and technology and how they tend to renovate or disrupt pre-existing institutions.

Papers should reflect on institutional crisis, focusing particularly on power structures and global markets. Institutions, following Amartya Sen’s definition, are intended as formal and informal arrangements that creates values, cultures and responsibilities that sustain a society.
