About us

Mundo Project started as a group of six graduate students based in Paris, New York, St Gallen, London and New Delhi who decided to gather to discuss and debate today’s world.

We felt that most articles that relate to politics and international affairs suffer both from a disenchanted commitment to reality or from a somewhat tedious academic tone when analyzing it.

This unfortunately leaves few opportunities for imaginative solutions and innovative suggestions tasks that we, young and curious students without a pre-determined conception of the “real” word, aim to undertake.

In this website, we will post articles wrote by young people scattered around the world that are anchored to the news and prompt a broader thinking about current affairs.
