The Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation (CSGR) was established in 1997 with over £4.3m in initial funding from the Economic and Social Research Council.
CSGR is an interdisciplinary research centre based in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick.
CSGR was founded to advance research and analysis of the changing dynamics of global order.
Our primary research themes include:
- Globalisation and regionalisation
- Global governance and global order
- Global civil society
Contemporary policy analysis and cutting-edge new research is published in the CSGR Working Papers series.
CSGR is also home to the Routledge Studies in Globalisation book series.
For two decades the series has published some of the leading volumes on the theory and practice of globalisation and regionalisation.
CSGR plays a leading role in the development of international research networks:
We aim to produce innovative research that informs policy debates and enhances public understanding of global and regional challenges.
It has been said that arguing against globalization is like arguing against the laws of gravity.
