Journal History

Global Strategis is a scientific journal published by Cakra Studi Global Strategis (CSGS), since 2007. Global Strategis is one of two journals of International Relations study authorized by Airlangga University that have been nationally accredited. Fundamentally, we have the vision to be an indispensable source of independent analysis, informed debate, and influential ideas to help improve policy and decision-making on global and strategic issues. In addition, we envision becoming an open container that can help facilitate global and strategic issues.

Global Strategis does not speak on certain holistic or limited perspectives only, but we embrace the growth and development of any strategic views toward global issues, even those that are complex, unique, and anti-mainstream. As a leading scientific journal in the study of International Relations in Indonesia, the missions of Global Strategis are (1) promoting a better understanding of contour, content, and context of strategic development; (2) producing independent and rigorous analysis of critical global, regional and country-specific challenges on advanced development; (3) developing new ideas and options to decision-makers and policy specialist in tackling of global strategic challenges.

The area interests of Global Strategis are wide, ranging from regional dynamics & transnational development issues, cosmopolitanism & globalization, nationhood & national interest, to international & foreign affairs. The scope of Global Strategis stems from the programs and activities of CSGS which comprised regular research & mapping; analysis & briefing; simulation and review; consultation and advocacy; negotiation and resolution; articulation & communication; and also dissemination & publication. Meanwhile CSGS, as the founder of Global Strategis, is a research group that originally works on various subjects, such as (1) globalization & non-military defense, (2) local autonomy, (3) maritime development & defense, (3) terrorism & conflict resolution, (4) ethnic conflict & human security, (5) migrant worker & sustainable development, (6) international business & negotiation.
