The Ghent Centre for Global Studies is an interdisciplinary research consortium that unites 11 research groups from 6 different faculties at Ghent University, around the critical study of global processes. In keeping with the spatial turn in the Social Sciences and the Humanities, the centre 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.
