Centre for Global Studies
The Centre for Global Studies (CGS) is a neoliberal think tank which is 'trying to sort our the sense and nonsense of "globalisation" and tackle the really big political economy question: what political and institutional supports does a free economy need to survive?'
- Between 1996 and 2001 the Centre for Post-Collectivist Studies held a variety of conferences on global issues and published a number of books. For example, Francis Fukuyama, The End of Order (1997), Robert Skidelsky ed., The Politics of Economic Reform (1998), Robert Skidelsky ed., Capital Regulation: For and Against (1999), Mauricio Rojas, Millennium Doom (1999), and two important essays by the Hungarian economist Janos Kornai. In addition, the Centre was responsible for the publication of "Russia on Russia", a quarterly journal based on the proceedings of the Moscow School of Political Studies.
- The Centre for Global Studies started life as its successor in mid-2002 after Professor Lord Skidelsky had ceased to be Chairman of the Social Market Foundation.
The Centre's website has not been updated since July 2004. It appears that this organisation is no longer active. Several parts of the website are still listed as "under construction" and have never been updated.
