About Student World
Student World is WSCF's annual academic journal produced by an inter-regional editorial team and published by the Inter-Regional Office. The ecumenical review Student World is a voice and forum for ecumenically-minded students and young intellectuals, creating a network of concerns and ideas. It focuses on critical perspectives from the world of theology, spirituality and politics and aims to reflect the wide variety of opinions and points of view present among the different regions of WSCF.
In 2003 WSCF took on the adventure of restarting Student World as its global journal after a break of almost forty years. From 1908 till the end of the 1960s Student World had been WSCF's main printed forum for expressing its concerns and ideas. When Student World stopped going to print in the 1970s, the WSCF Book Series continued the role of publishing analysis of current themes and ideas from the worldwide federation.
