Since its inception in 1998, the Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition has contributed to research and teaching excellence about globalizing processes and how these come to bear upon our lives, our communities, and the environment in which we live.
Graduate students learn about these processes through our unique MA in Globalization Studies and from research support to PhD students in many disciplines.
Institute members have achieved Canadian and international recognition in their respective areas of focus. These areas include conflict and security, environmental sustainability, labour and the economy, identity and religion, indigeneity, governance and citizenship, health and social policy, historical perspectives, and literature, media and popular culture.
