Discover more from The Cosmopolitan Globalist
A GUIDE TO OUR ARCHIVES
First Draft: All suggestions welcome.
This is a very incomplete first draft: I’m publishing it to see how it looks, not because it’s canonical. I’ve tentatively organized it under “Themes” and “Regions.” Some articles belong to more than one region or theme: Short of listing them several times, which would be cumbersome, I’m not sure what to do about that.
I didn’t list anything from Global Eyes or Notes on the News because I only want to feature essays that remain topical.
If you’re new to the Cosmopolitan Globalist, you need a guide to the hundreds of essays, investigative series, podcasts, and debates we’ve published here by writers around the world. You paid for access to these archives, so this guide is meant to help you enjoy everything to which you’re now entitled.
(If you haven’t yet subscribed, have a look at what we keep behind the paywall and feel the yearning. Wouldn’t you love to read essays like those?)
Read our archives. Listen to our podcasts. Join our debates. Become the best-informed person you know. Support liberal democracy. Please pay Claire for her work.
This is not a comprehensive index. You can find one here, organized in reverse-chronological order. There’s lots in the archives. This isn’t canonical, either. It’s just a selection that showcases what I think we do well.
