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 American Economic Review, Journal of the European Economic Association, 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).
