Research at School of Global Studies

The pace and extent to which human activity is becoming global is increasing as growing numbers of social actors and sites become linked into “globalized space” in ways that are becoming increasingly complex and diverse. Global Studies is therefore an important field of knowledge and the School of Global Studies constitutes a unique environment for research and education in issues of security, culture and development in the global context.

Disciplines

The School of Global Studies offers a unique combination of disciplines that examine the complexity of globalization: peace and development research, human ecology, social anthropology, regional studies, the study of human rights as well as global culture and globalized cultural heritage (Museion).

Research groups

The School’s research environment comprises six interdisciplinary research groups that complement and integrate disciplinary research. There are currently six research groups at the School: Global Gender Studies, Global Sustainability Studies, Indigenous Studies, Migration and Diversity, Reconstruction and Intervention, and Resistance Studies.
