Centre for Globalisation Research (CGR)

The Centre for Globalisation Research (CGR) conducts research, dissemination and user engagement activities around three research themes:

  • Political economy and macroeconomics
  • Development, inequality and environmental economics
  • Business analytics, innovation and networks

CGR’s collective contribution to theoretical and empirical research is evidenced by publications in high quality journals in economics and management, including the Review of Economics and Statistics, Journal of Public Economics, Management Science and Academy of Management. CGR’s interdisciplinary research on innovation and social networks has been published in the world’s top medical journals (Lancet, BMJ, Annals of Surgery) and other leading journals, including Nature.

As part of its international reach, the Centre also hosts the Research Circle for the Study of Inequality and Poverty (RCSIP).

CGR is composed by academics based at Queen Mary University of London. Members also comprise researchers based at other universities in UK and overseas. Along with visiting scholars, who make a significant contribution to the Centre’s academic life, we host PhD students with an interest in our three research themes.
