The Journal of social criticism 'Commons' is a Ukrainian left intellectual edition, founded in 2009. We cover a wide range of topics, such as Ukrainian and international politics, economics, education and science, ecology, gender, culture, etc. using a powerful tools of modern critical social theories.

During the existence of the Journal, we introduced to the Ukrainian audience a large number of progressive Ukrainian authors, as well as hundreds of articles from well-known foreign scholars and publicists. 'Commons' publishes rewiewed analytical articles, interviews, reports, blogs with a subjective view of current events. In addition to regular publications on the site, we publish printed issues of "thick jornal" devoted to specific socio-economic problems and topical political processes.

'Commons' Journal is a non-commercial edition not affiliated with any political party or organization. We are open to authors with different perspectives that offer interesting ideas and socio-critical analysis of current events and processes. At the same time, the members of the editorial board prefer anti-capitalist and internationalist ideas as well as materialist analysis of society.
