Global, Area, and International Archive is a peer-reviewed publications program. GAIA is an initiative of the division of International and Area Studies, University of California, Berkeley, in partnership with the University of California Press, the California Digital Library, and international research programs across the University of California system. Its aim is to represent the best traditions of regional studies, reconfigured through fresh global, transnational, and thematic perspectives. GAIA volumes are published in both open-access digital and print editions.
The Orfalea Center and the Global & International Studies Program at UCSB have facilitated the posting of GAIA-relevant articles for the wider global studies community at UCSB.
