The School is home to Warwick’s Institute for Global Sustainable Development (IGSD). IGSD provides a focal point for Warwick’s sustainable development research, contributing towards the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals but still challenging of them. IGSD’s vision is to be at the forefront of knowledge creation, enabling transformations towards a more sustainable, prosperous, healthier, and just world for all.
The School currently houses the three university-wide interdisciplinary research networks detailed below. We are committed to further development and institutionalisation of these networks and to providing support for the development of others.
The strong tradition of Latin American research at Warwick, which dates back nearly to the university’s founding, has built a strong collective of scholars here today focusing on the region. LAWN seeks to bring these scholars together, raising the profile of the modern and kinetic work taking place at Warwick, and creating a community surrounding that work.

Warwick's Oral History Network is an interdisciplinary network engaged in theoretical and practical issues involved in interviewing for research. The network offers a variety of academic seminars and workshops which are open to all, as well as guidance and support for people's oral history projects.
Established in 2019-20, this network aims to promote and raise the profile of research on or in Africa at Warwick. The network is founded on the recognition that, while there has been historically and is at present a good deal of excellent research on Africa going on at Warwick, it has often been scattered across departments, faculties, and disciplines. The network aims to be a hub for researchers with interests across the region, promoting interdisciplinary and collaborative work.
