Research at the GESI

The study of globalization and Europeanization which is at the centre of GESI’s research and teaching activities is truly multifaceted. 

The collaborative character of most of the projects run at the institute reflects the need for combined efforts and shared competencies when targeting these open processes. What GESI contributes to these various forms of cooperation are grouped together under the following research profiles which are methodologically inspired by a profound debate on the interaction of comparative approaches with the study of cultural transfers:


- Changing World Orders
- Portals of Globalization
- Reflexive Global and Area Studies
