In each issue we will present one of the editorial teams that collaborate in the translation and production of Global Dialogue.
It is a pleasure to introduce our team of Brazilian regional editors to the readers of Global Dialogue worldwide. Furthermore, we are extremely excited to work in a publication that has contributed greatly to the exchange of experiences and information on sociology from the most diverse places.
