UCLA International Institute





The Center for Comparative and Global Research fosters the scientific study of topics from a comparative and international -- and “non-region specific” -- perspective.

Established in July 2000 as an integral part of the UCLA International Institute, the center focuses on comparative and global issues that

  • intersect the traditionally-defined divisions of international and comparative affairs
  • cut across the regions of the world represented by ISOP’s area studies centers
  • may be either topical or historical 
  • can be examined through basic social science methodologies, with a multi-disciplinary emphasis. 

The CCGR also aims to provide a statewide network for research and dialogue among social sciences faculty and graduate students. In doing so, the CCGR brings together researchers from traditional disciplines and professional schools at higher education institutions throughout California for a new kind of international studies forum.
