Navigating a turbulent world

The world is facing enormous social, political and ecological challenges. And the impacts are being felt far beyond any single geographic area.

Our researchers are exploring the many forces that cause globalization and the related political, socio-economic and cultural implications. Their insights enhance our understanding of freedom, injustices and inequalities.

Areas of study include governance, politics, international law and trade, public management, feminist perspectives, transgender studies, cultural inquiry and social policy analysis.
