Welcome to Sphaera Magazine! We are a young and vibrant online magazine based in The Hague, created by and for students of Leiden University. The magazine was founded in 2018 by students of International Relations and Organisations (IRO), but we have since expanded and are now open to other courses as well. Since we started, we have grown tremendously and now have a wonderful group of writers, editors and illustrators.
Our goal as a magazine is to encapsulate the spirit, drive and creativity of the Campus the Hague community and share it with you all. We provide a platform for students interested in writing about politics, economics, social sciences and even arts and culture. The breadth of our content reflects the open, diverse and inclusive spirit of our community. Diversity in thought and opinion, creative liberty and freedom of expression are very important to use at Sphaera*.
