If you are looking for a magazine with journalism with a capital G in it, this is the one for you. Point.51 is an independent magazine that, one at a time, pauses to explore crucial topical issues in contemporary Europe.
In each issue a single theme
it is addressed and analyzed in depth and in detail, with investigative texts and original photographs.
The name Point.51 derives from the geographical meeting point - in degrees of latitude - between Great Britain and continental Europe in the English Channel. Historically, this meeting point has served to connect and divide the islands of Great Britain and Ireland from the rest of Europe. Today, many of these connections and divisions continue and the name represents the magazine's mission: to return a thoughtful vision on the issues that shape the future of Europe.
ISSUE 2 - BRITAIN
The second issue of Point.51 analyzes post-Brexit Britain and what the referendum, well beyond the question it posed, revealed: a profound identity crisis, an increasingly jagged consensus and answers that are not easy to find.
- In London we meet the protagonists of the new wave of climate activism, because the future of the planet competes with Brexit for attention.
- Let's analyze some of the most important events in modern history to see what they are like today.
- We head to Port Talbot in Wales, one of Britain's last surviving steel cities, to meet people determined to see the city reinvent itself.
- In Bulgaria, we meet some of the British immigrants who have built their home in one of the poorest member states of the EU.
- We travel to Scotland to meet the man who stole a symbolic stone from Westminster Abbey in 1950 and brought it home in the name of Scottish nationalism, sparking a nationwide manhunt.
- Across the Irish Sea, we travel to Dublin and Belfast to talk to people concerned about the return of a "hard border" and also about the possibility of armed conflict.
- We head to Albania, a country that hopes to join the EU as Britain prepares to leave, challenging the idea that geography alone can make a country "European".
