About the Center

The Yale Center for the Study of Globalization (YCSG) was launched in the fall of 2001 to enrich the debate about globalization on campus and to promote the flow of ideas between Yale and the policy world.

The programs and activities of the Center share a common purpose and aim toward one or more goals, all serving to stimulate discussion and examination of the core issues and to connect individuals and institutions whose work contributes to the debate on globalization. Central to YCSG’s goals is to link academia and the policy world.

A range of international projects and collaborations allow us to increase our impact outside the University, while within the Yale community YCSG serves to connect people and ideas and seeks to invigorate academic interchange. Our efforts are motivated by a desire to understand globalization and the institutions and policies needed to enhance it as a force for good.

All of the Center’s programs focus on and are driven by our core mission. Our ideal is that in the course of our work we would encourage the generation of ideas and concrete proposals that will result in enabling the poorest and weakest peoples to participate in the opportunities presented by globalization.
