About

Crisis Magazine: Editorial Mission

Since the 2015 rise in migrant arrivals to Europe, the contested term, “migrant crisis” has dominated political discourse across European countries. Xenophobic sentiment is on the rise across Europe, reinforcing right wing narratives about migration and borders. Meanwhile, progressives have struggled to propose an alternative approach to interpreting and responding to the so-called “crisis.”

What do Leftists and progressives have to offer at this junction?

Crisis Magazine aims to critically examine the causes and wider implications of what has been called the “migrant crisis.” We will give voice to soundly informed, politically progressive perspectives about the various manifestations of this so-called crisis, both in European politics and in migrants’ lives and countries. We are inspired by the etymology of the term, crisis, from the ancient Greek, krisis: a turning point that calls for decisive judgement.

We see this moment as calling for a deep re-engagement with concepts of solidarity, internationalism and human dignity.

Crisis will invite relevant scholars, thinkers, organizers, activists, and artists to make contributions toward informing and sparking debate among a left wing-oriented, politically progressive, internationalist audience. Consolidated efforts will be made to include contributions by leftist thinkers from the global periphery, women, and minorities.
