Focus on research

Global Studies, Ghent University

Global Studies examines the ways in which people across the globe are affected every day by an unprecedented array of linkages that defy geographic and political boundaries. Global Studies draws on insights from disciplines across the humanities and social sciences to give students the theoretical and methodological skills and the knowledge base necessary to understand this complex and rapidly changing world.

The interdisciplinary research cluster at Ghent University unites geographers, social and political scientists, economists, lawyers, educationalists, historians and philosophers – a total of 11 research groups from 6 different faculties – around the critical study of global processes. In keeping with the spatial turn in the Social Sciences and the Humanities, the cluster aims to question the boundaries and scales of space and place, focusing on the co-construction of the local and the global, with special attention to the historical and ethical dimensions of economic, political, social and cultural globalisation, and to (local) agency in global processes and globe-making projects.
