The Mantle provides a forum for the next generation of leaders, artists, innovators, and visionaries to express their opinions and ideas. The Mantle encourages emerging voices from around the world to participate in the shaping of social and political discourse. The Mantle critiques popular and influential international books, literature, film, and elements of society and culture, as well as hosting blogs and virtual roundtable discussions on timely political questions.
Some issues require more space to fully flesh out. Hence, the virtual roundtable, The Mantle’s flagship element wherein emerging thinkers from a variety of backgrounds debate and discuss the merits of a given question. The intention of the roundtable is two-fold: to provide a deeper space for young intellectuals to explore a topic, and to further and stimulate the general discourse of a particular subject.
