Centre for Research on Globalization /
Centre de recherche sur la mondialisation
The Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) is an independent research and media organization based in Montreal. The CRG is a registered non-profit organization in the province of Quebec, Canada.
In addition to the Global Research websites, the Centre is involved in book publishing, support to humanitarian projects as well as educational outreach activities including the organization of public conferences and lectures. The Centre also acts as a think tank on crucial economic and geopolitical issues.
The Global Research website at www.globalresearch.ca publishes news articles, commentary, background research and analysis on a broad range of issues, focusing on social, political, economic, cultural, strategic and environmental issues.
The Global Research website was established on the 9th of September 2001, two days before the tragic events of September 11. Barely a few days later, Global Research had become a major news source on the New World Order and Washington’s “war on terrorism”.
Since September 2001, we have established an extensive archive of news articles, in-depth reports and analysis on issues which are barely covered by the mainstream media.
In an era of media disinformation, our focus has essentially been to center on the “unspoken truth”.
During the invasion of Iraq (March-April 2003), Global Research published, on a daily basis, independent reports from the Middle East, which provided an alternative to the news emanating from the “embedded” journalists reporting from the war theater. Since 2004, Global Research has provided detailed analysis and coverage of US-NATO-Israel preparations to wage a pre-emptive nuclear attack on Iran. Starting in 2011, GR has developed dossiers on the US-NATO led wars on Libya and Syria, the Arab Protest movement, the environmental impacts of the Fukushima disaster, the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, the Saudi-US led war on Yemen, the militarization of the African continent, the development of the police state in North America and Western Europe, the devastating impacts of biotechnology and GMO among other important topics.
In early 2006, Global Research established a separate French language website:
In 2007, we launched Spanish (Español), Portuguese (Português), and German (Deutsch) language pages, which contain translations of Global Research articles. Arabic العربية, Italian, (Italiano) and Serbian (srpski) language pages were launched in 2008. A Chijnese language page was launched in 2020.
Global Research TV (GRTV)
In June 2010, we launched The Global Research TV (GRTV) website, which features selected videos as well as commentary, analysis and news coverage
The articles in French are contained in a separate www.Mondialisation.ca archive. Those in other languages are contained in the main Globalresearch.ca archive.
Global Research articles are used as source material by college and university students. Moreover, numerous universities, libraries and research institutions have established a link to Global Research on their respective web sites.
Global Research has also become a source of specialized information and analysis for journalists, senior government officials, financial analysts and non-governmental organizations.
In September 2012, we inaugurated the template of our new English and French language websites.
GR Radio: The Global Research News Hour (GRNH)
In November 2012, we launched our Radio program: produced by Michael Welch in collaboration with CKUW 95.9 FM (University of Winnipeg, Manitoba).
In Canada, the GRNH is broadcast by nine partner radio stations in B.C., Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick including Simon Fraser University (BC), University of Victoria (BC), campus and community radio stations in Ontario, University of New Brunswick St Johns.
In May 2015, the Centre for Research on Globalization established the Asia-Pacific Research (APR) website. APR is an independent media and research initiative with an editorial team based in Asia, the EU and North America, with correspondents in several countries of the region.
The Asia-Pacific Research website at asia-pacificresearch.com publishes news articles, commentary, background research and analysis with a specific focus on the dynamics of the Asia-Pacific region. APR combines Asia-Pacific country level news with a broader regional and international perspective of World events.
In 2017, Global Research established a Spanish language website globalizacion.ca based in Mexico City.
Global Research Authors
Since 2001, Global Research has established an international network of authors, scholars and investigative journalists. Global Research counts among its regular contributors a number of prominent writers, researchers and academics as well as several promising young authors. The underlying concept is the “democratization” of research and media reporting, while maintaining high standards of investigation and analysis.
Many Global Research authors have developed their own blog sites. Our focus has been to acknowledge and support our authors’ blog sites, while also promoting several partner alternative and independent media websites. In turn, Global Research articles are widely cross-posted by the independent online media.
Emphasis has been placed on establishing a comprehensive archive of Global Research articles and audio-visual material.
The original source and an author’s copyright note are indicated at the foot of each article.
The Global Research archive (2001-2018) includes more than 50,000 articles and news reports. The Mondialisation.ca archive contains more than 15,000 articles in French.
More than 10,000 authors have contributed to Global Research.
Since the launching of GRTV, we have developed an archive of videos, classified by theme and geographic region.
In 2008, Global Research and Professor Chossudovsky were awarded The First National Prize of the Mexican Press Club, for the “Best Research Website” at the international level.
In the course of the last few years, several Global Research authors have received awards for their writings.
Media and University Cooperation Agreements
In 2008, The Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) established a Cooperation Agreement with the Mexican Press Club (Mexico City) representing 12,000 Mexican Journalists.
In 2015 The Centre for Research on Globalization established a Cooperation Agreement with the University of the Philippines, Cebu (UP-Cebu).
In 2016, an agreement –focussing specifically on research and outreach education to rural areas– was signed with the Autonomous National University of Nicaragua, Managua (UNAN).
In 2019, the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) collaborated with the UNAN in the creation of a Development Studies Centre (CEDMEP) named after Father Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann. CEDMEB was launched in early 2020 as an independent academic entity with a focus on research, graduate studies and outreach activities.
Global Research Readership
According to Alexa, the web ranking agency, Global Research is ranked among the top 28,000 most popular websites Worldwide (all categories) out of a Worldwide total of over 850 million active websites Worldwide (2014). It is among the top 18,000 websites (all categories) in the US.
While Global Research operates on a shoe string budget compared to the well-endowed establishment think tanks, it is more popular –in terms of its “Global Rank”– (despite the search engine bias against independent media) with more readers than the powerful Council on Foreign Relations (CFR at cfr.org).
It is crucial that the articles published on Global Research reach a broad readership.
We encourage our readers to cross-post and/or forward Global Research articles, post them social media, submit them to internet discussion groups, send them to your friends on your e-mail lists, etc. This will help Global Research in its endeavors.
Global Research sends selected articles by email at no charge in the form of an electronic newsletter.
