The BSIA’s research clusters bring together faculty, fellows and graduate students to support research activities in areas of the broader global governance and international policy domains. These areas include issues concerning conflict, peace, security, economic development, environment, resources, public health, technology and innovation, migration, food security and more. The concept of a research ‘cluster’ characterizes the way in which these research groups work across different domains – spanning social, life, physical, material and natural science – and come together in forms required to support specific research problems and future policy challenges.
Research clusters meet regularly to engage in critical intellectual debate and research collaboration. The Clusters also host events and guest presenters, and provide support to policymakers.
