Q

What is NANSEN Magazine?

A

NANSEN is a print magazine about migrants of all kinds. Find out more about our magazine.

 

Q

What’s with the name?

A

Our magazine is named after Fridtjof Nansen, the Norwegian explorer and humanitarian who orchestrated mass relief for various groups of refugees following World War One and the Russian Revolution. He also created a document that allowed refugees to cross borders legally, now known as the Nansen Passport. We’re inspired by his spirit of adventure and his big thinking on migration. He also had a formidable moustache.

 

Q

What does NANSEN magazine look and feel like?

A

NANSEN Magazine feels a bit like a giant passport, with its friendly textured cover. Our magazine is the perfect size to tuck in your bag and take on a long journey, or pack in a suitcase ready for you to open when you reach your new home.

Q

Is NANSEN available as a digital magazine?

A

At a time when we’re struggling to hear each other above all that digital noise, our print magazine offers you the chance to take a break from the screen and have a cup of tea or coffee with a migrant. To hear what they have to say about their own life.

NANSEN Magazine offers a personal, intimate experience of getting to know another human being. If you’re not a migrant and you read our magazine, you might even end up wanting to join us!

NANSEN Magazine is available exclusively in print and we’re proud to be part of a community of dedicated indie magazine makers.

 

Q

How much does shipping cost?

A

For Issue 01, we priced the magazine at 12 EUR, plus shipping. For readers outside Germany, this meant the total price was 16,30 EUR, once shipping had been added.

Starting with Issue 02, we wanted to make our pricing easier to follow, without any unexpected surprises at checkout. So we changed our pricing to a flat rate of 15 EUR, including shipping to anywhere in the world.

Now, NANSEN Magazine will cost the same no matter where you live or where you've moved to. We hope this makes it easier for you to buy your copy online. Let us know what you think!

Q
