About CSGR



The Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation (CSGR) was inaugurated in 1997, and was founded to advance cutting-edge research on the changing nature of global order and the relationship between global and regional levels of analysis. A key focus is on producing high-impact and innovative academic research that challenges the conventional wisdom, informs contemporary policy debates, and contributes to enhancing public understanding of major global and regional issues. Initially funded from 1997 to 2007 with over £4.3 million from the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council, CSGR has coordinated several large grants and major research projects. This includes coordinating projects funded by the European Commission under the 6th and 7th Framework Programmes: the Network of Excellence on Global Governance, Regionalisation and Regulation (GARNET), and Global Reodering: Evolution through European Networks (GR:EEN). CSGR scholars have also played a leading role on the Warwick Commission on The Multilateral Trade Regime and the Warwick Commission on International Financial Reform.



The current strategic research priorities of the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation focus on the changing dynamics of globalisation and regionalisation, global governance and global order, and global civil society.
