Aims and Objectives: The overarching aim of the Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation (CGG) is to make a major contribution to our knowledge and understanding of the changing ways in which people collaborate, participate in and identify with society. 

To understand the forms of collaboration, participation and identity two major concepts are employed. These concepts are citizenship and globalisation.

The CGG is currently the foremost multidisciplinary research clusters studying citizenship and globalisation in Australia and seeks to become one of the most significant internationally. In particular, the CGG aims to:

  • contribute to the theoretical development of the concepts of citizenship and globalisation;
  • undertake research into the areas and problems of citizenship and globalisation;
  • communicate theoretical, empirical and practical developments in citizenship and globalisation to an academic and public audience;
  • identify the ways in which our understanding of citizenship and globalisation can make a practical difference;
  • engage in dialogue on citizenship and globalisation with government, business, community and cultural groups outside the university;
  • increase the uptake of research in key local, national and international organisations;
  • develop and maintain a vibrant research culture in which individual and team research projects can flourish and inform the teaching and learning programs of the Faculty of Arts and Deakin University;
  • provide high quality research training through its higher degree programs;
  • expand its research performance across all key areas and so assist Deakin University in meeting its research targets.
