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 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 reviewed 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.
