Centre for International Governance
The Centre for International Governance (CfIG) promotes and undertakes research on the globalisation of governance through law.
This is a dynamic and vital areas of research, given that state law is now overlain by a fragmented system that includes both traditional forms of international law, the laws of international organisations and new forms of governance by non-state actors.
Building on human rights research
As our centre builds on the work of the Human Rights Research Unit, a major focus of our work is on international and comparative human rights law.
We provide an intellectual home for scholars engaged in research on aspects of international governance and supports longer-term collaborative research projects.
We aim to be recognised as a leading centre for research on international governance through law, and a significant contributor to policy debates.
A global research network
Our centre continues to build on its important links with international institutions engaged in research into global and international law and governance, and to host lectures and seminars, an annual conference, and annual lecture.
The centre's ambition is both to make a significant contribution to doctrinal and theoretical work on the idea and nature of international governance, and to be a major contributor to debates in this area with the aim of enhancing policy-making that promotes global justice and human rights.
