The international community

Despite claiming to strive for peace, justice and stability, the international community, spearheaded by organizations like the UN, the WEF and the G7 or G20, more resembles a bickering group of toddlers that cannot agree on anything. Our cartoonists reflect on the world's leaders and the structures that are created to make them cooperate.

Borders

Borders are a large party of our identity. They define the 'us', the area of the world we call home. However, they do so by excluding the 'them', the others that live outside the borders we have defined. Borders are what binds us (the us within the borders), but also what divides us (humanity as a whole). Would the world be a better place without borders?
