Grants to this Grantee
for the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization  
The Yale Center for the Study of Globalization is a focal point for raising questions, triggering analysis and debate, and connecting policy actors concerned with issues such as global development, international trade, financial globalization, global public goods, and global governance. One of the Center’s international collaborations, for example, involves providing ongoing advisory support for the Natural Resource Charter, a set of principles on how best to harness the opportunities for development generated by extractive resource revenues. During this final phase of program support from the Foundation, the Center will seek to diversify funding so that it may continue its public programs—including lectures, workshops, and conferences—and expand the readership of its online magazine YaleGlobal.
