Although our cartoonists draw about a wide range of issues, some subjects get a lot of ink. On this page, you can find the collections we have created about these subjects, grouping together some of our favorite cartoons that provide different perspectives and global coverage.

Technology can be seen as the cornerstone of our civilization. Indeed, many regard technology as one of the defining elements of human progress. But like everything, technological innovations have a downside: new technology can have a profound (and negative) impact on the environment, on the way we behave and on society as a whole.
The Catholic Church
The history of the Catholic Church has always been rich in controversy and scandal. As a political force, the church is a powerful and intrinsically undemocratic institution with a fair amount of influence in international politics; as a religious institution, it continues to influence the lives of millions of people on a daily basis.
World of waste
Every year we dump a massive 2.12 billion tons of waste. 99 percent of the stuff we buy is trashed within 6 months.
Social media have a profound impact on our lives. They have not only changed how we communicate and how we interact, they also play an ever-increasing role in politics. On the downside, spreading fake news can be used to manipulate elections, and authoritarian regimes are increasingly embracing social media as a way to control and monitor people. On the upside, social media has allowed popular uprisings to spread further and faster than ever.
Human Rights Day
Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). In this collection we have selected some of the best cartoons about human rights. Be sure to also see our 30 cartoons illustrating the 30 articles of the UDHR, made for the United Nations in 2018.
The inclusion of persons with disabilities is an essential condition to upholding human rights, sustainable development, and peace and security, says the UN. But there is still a long way to go, say our cartoonists.
Yet another variant of concern has emerged. The newest mutation of the coronavirus is named Omicron.

Violence against women is a major public health problem and a violation of women's human rights.
