The GSD is dedicated to promoting dialogue between students from or interested in issues affecting the Global South (countries in the “Third World” being Africa, Latin America, and Asia with interconnected histories of colonialism, neo-imperialism, and differential economic and social change, and minority groups in the West).

We aim to provide a platform for students to engage in transnational and postcolonial dialogues, in informal and academic settings, in order to understand and learn how other Global South societies have responded to common issues.

We recognize the importance of a global culture and seek to facilitate understanding of transnational and postcolonial issues and to enable students to imagine and create strategies about law, socio-economic development, democracy and decolonization.
