Geographica Helvetica is a European multilingual free open-access journal of geography based in Switzerland. It offers a platform for empirically grounded and theory-driven research and debates in all fields of geography as well as in neighbouring disciplines. The journal is particularly committed to exploring and fostering situated and internationalist perspectives on the manifold connections, disconnections and differences within Europe, and between Europe and other parts of the world. This agenda derives from the specificity of Swiss geography as a meeting ground for different geographical traditions and languages. In addition to standard research articles published in and outside of theme issues in English, German, French and Italian, we also publish a range of shorter and experimental interventions and book reviews.
