The Monash Institute for the Study of Global Movements seeks to advance knowledge of the diverse economic, social, political and cultural dimensions to global movements. It undertakes high-quality research, fosters public discussion and offers expert advice.
The Institute is concerned with three key questions:
- What are the nature and implications of the global movement of people, resources and ideas?
- What institutions, systems and structures are evolving to facilitate global flows, movements, and global interdependence; and what are the implications for national and local institutions?
- What is the impact on security, human rights and national identities in an increasingly mobile and often borderless world?
While serving Monash University as a whole, the Institute draws especially on co-operative initiatives in the faculties of Arts, Art and Design, Education, Law and Business and Economics.
