Glocal Conversations is a journal of the University of the Nations (U of N). The U of N is a truly global university, offering over 650 different courses in nearly 160 nations, in 97 languages. With a mandate to multiply workers for global service, the U of N was born out of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), an international movement of Jesus-followers from many backgrounds, cultures, and traditions. The purpose of the journal is like the passion of the university. Understanding that reflection should lead to action, the journal exists not for esoteric theorizing divorced from service, but to help evaluate progress in order to multiply effectiveness. The journal aims to create a space for dialogue between academics and practitioners, between theory and practice, between research and application.
