In 2007, Monocle magazine was launched to provide a briefing on global affairs, business, culture, design and much more. The magazine believes that there is a globally minded audience of readers who are hungry for opportunities and experiences beyond their national borders.
This issue: Monocle’s December/January bumper issue will take you to the far reaches of the globe, from poring over design details in Uzbekistan to petting mountain rescue dogs in Alaska. Alongside their annual Soft Power Survey, we get the local view on Libya a decade on from Gaddafi’s fall and catch up with the president of Costa Rica at Cop26. We also take a drive around Detroit’s art scene and see why Lithuania’s second city is luring film scouts.
