About this producer

The New Internationalist workers' co-operative (NI) exists to report on the issues of world poverty and inequality; to focus attention on the unjust relationship between the powerful and powerless worldwide; to debate and campaign for the radical changes necessary to meet the basic needs of all; and to bring to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.

The New Internationalist communications co-operative is based in Oxford UK with editorial and sales offices in Toronto, Canada; Adelaide, Australia; Christchurch, Aotearoa /New Zealand; and Tokyo, Japan.

The New Internationalist Magazine

For our subscribers we produce a monthly print magazine, the New Internationalist. It sets out to explain and inform, giving readers the essentials of a subject in a concise, easy-to-read full-colour format with excellent photos and graphics. In each issue New Internationalist editors select a subject of vital interest. It could be Human Rights, Hunger, Fair Trade or Globalization. The magazine takes the subject apart, examines the issues and then reconstructs it to give you a coherent picture. You come away with a clear grasp of an important topic.

With over 40 years of publishing under its belt, the New Internationalist is renowned for its radical, campaigning stance on a range of world issues, from the cynical marketing of babymilk in the Majority World to human rights in Burma.

An Independent View

Publications from the New Internationalist are produced by an independent trust working as a not-for-profit cooperative. Originally the group was sponsored by Oxfam, Christian Aid and the Cadbury and Rowntree Trusts, but since the early 1980s sponsorship has no longer been needed.

This financial independence is something we cherish. It not only allows us to decide what goes into the magazine but it gives us the freedom to say what we think about a subject - from Nuclear Energy to Banks; from Trade Justice to Terrorism.

But to retain this independence we need your help. There are three easy ways for you to support our work:

1. Subscribe now to the print edition of the New Internationalist magazine.
2. Subscribe to our free eNewsletter.
3. Visit our online shop regularly. If you can easily buy organic and fairly traded goods, why wouldn't you?

Commendations

I began buying the New Internationalist magazine because it started to educate me on issues that I was interested in; globalization, fair trade, inequities, injustice ... it has huge authority and credibility and authenticity ...
