DelegatesCSGR 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

Realising RightsContemporary 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 nearly two decades the series has published some of the leading volumes on the theory and practice of globalisation and regionalisation.

Warwick Commission Report

We aim to produce innovative research that informs policy debates and enhances public understanding of global and regional challenges.

Policy commissions

CSGR researchers have played a leading role in coordinating research for the Warwick Commission on the Multilateral Trade Regime and the Warwick Commission on International Financial Reform.

It has been said that arguing against globalization is like arguing against the laws of gravity.

–Kofi Annan, 7th Secretary-General of the United Nations
