A Recent KN Report on KCG
With the official start of the Kiel Centre for Globalisation (KCG), the Kieler Nachrichten (KN) recently published a report on the research focus and the planned activities of the KCG based on an interview with Prof. Holger Görg. As emphasised by Prof. Görg, over the past decades of globalisation some people have won but others have lost and there have been some undesirable side effects. Thus, the main focus of the KCG is not only to gain more insights into how globalisation actually has worked but also how trade and global division of labour can be arranged in a more sustainable and fairer way in the future.
Related research activities are conducted to consider different aspects of globalisation, supported by a strongly interdisciplinary research team. Research activities do, however, not end up with academic publications only. The KCG also provides its research results via different channels to interested stakeholders from business, politics and NGOs etc. and to the public.
