The Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies (“the Centre”) is an interdisciplinary research centre of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the KU Leuven (University of Leuven). It was set up to promote, support and carry out high-quality international, innovative and interdisciplinary research on global governance. In addition to its fundamental research activities the Centre carries out independent applied research and offers innovative policy advice and solutions to policy-makers on multilateral governance and global public policy issues. In 2010, the Centre has been recognized as a KU Leuven Centre of Excellence. The Centre brings together talent from throughout the University. It operates on the basis of co-ownership and the strong conviction that interdisciplinary research creates added value to resolve complex multi-faceted international problems. The Centre promotes pioneering projects in law, economics and political science and actively initiates and encourages interdisciplinary, cross-cutting research initiatives in pursuit of solutions to real world problems.
