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

The CGR engages with the international academic community by organising annual conferences, workshops and seminars. We also host CGR Brown Bag seminars, an opportunity for CGR members to present their works in progress. You can find a comprehensive list of events below.
Past CGR Seminars
The Globalisation Lecture Series is a prestigious annual series offering a platform to prominent academics and policy-makers to discuss the latest debate in economics and economic policy. The Series has attracted world leading scholars such as Scott Barrett (Columbia), Esther Duflo (MIT), Jeffrey Sachs (Columbia), Alberto Alesina (Harvard), Paul Collier (Oxford) and Ekaterina Zhuravskaya (Paris School of Economics and EHESS).

The aim of the seminars is to present early-stage papers and receive timely feedbacks from peers to improve papers before submission.
This seminar series discusses research on the obstacles to career progression and discrimination faced by female, ethnic minority and LGBTQA+ members of the academic economics profession.
