Research Chairs in
Globalization and Development
The Chair is intended to contribute to the reinvigoration of research relating to international
development at McGill. The proposed Chair’s research is open to all regions but grouped
under the Institute’s one overarching theme: democracy and democratization. Within that
perspective, the proposed Chair should work within one of the following research clusters:
economic development; states and state-building; and social pluralism and civil society.
