CSGR

Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation (CSGR)

Inaugurated on 1 October 1997, the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation (CSGR)--with initial baseline funding of 2.5 million for the first five years by the Economic and Social Research Council of the UK--is the largest research centre dealing with the study of globalisation and regionalisation in Europe. It has become an international site for research in this area.
 
The staff members are: the full time Executive Director, Professor Richard Higgott, from the Department of Politics and International Studies, two Co-Directors, Professors John Whalley and Marcus Miller from the Department of Economics, Associate Director (Research) Professor Ben Lockwood who is half time in CSGR and the Department of Economics, Senior Research Fellows Drs. Ted To and Shaun Breslin and Research Fellow Dr.Chris Hughes.
 
Other senior staff involved in the work of the Centre include Wyn Grant (Politics) and Robin Cohen (Sociology). There are a number of members of Warwick faculty seconded to the Centre from their home departments (Politics and International Studies, Economics , Law and Sociology). CSGR is also supported by an Administrative Secretary and an Assistant Secretary. In addition, the Centre hosts an Annual Visiting Fellowship scheme. Visiting Fellowhips will be drawn from scholars and practitioners (from the public and the private sector) working on projects relevant to the Centre's research agenda.
The Centre's International Advisory Board is chaired by Sir Shridath Ramphal, Chancellor of the University, former Secretary General of the Commonwealth and Chairman of the Commission on Global Governance. Members of the board include senior academics from major universities; senior policy makers from the WTO, the OECD and the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office; members of the European Parliament and the British House of Lords and senior office holders of international companies such as British Airways, Shell and AT&T.
 
The Centre is in the process of establishing collaborative links with major centres in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
The research agenda of the Centre deals with the definition of globalisation, its impact and the policy implications.
