The Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG) is an independent research organization and media group of writers, scholars, journalists and activists.
The CRG is based in Montreal. It is a registered non profit organization in the province of Quebec, Canada.
In addition to the Global Research website, 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 webpage at globalresearch.ca publishes news articles, commentary, background research and analysis on a broad range of issues, focussing on social, economic, strategic and environmental processes.
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.
In early 2006, Global Research established a separate French language website, mondialisation.ca, which reaches Francophone readers in Western Europe, North America, sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East.
In 2007, we launched Spanish, Portuguese and German language pages, which contain translations of Global Research articles. Arabic and Serbian language pages were launched in 2008.
In 2008, Global Research launched the Global Research News Hour radio program, in collaboration with the Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN). The GRNH, broadcast by RBN out of Houston (Mon-Fri) provides a global perspective on what is happening in America and around the World, with noted guests sharing their expertise with listeners.
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.
Since 2001, Global Research has established an international network of writers and analysts. Global Research counts among its regular contributors a number of prominent writers, researchers and academics as well as several promising young authors. Our data bank now includes a classification by author, and by country. Also of interest is an archive of audio-video material.
Global Research is classified by Alexa (the web-ranking organization), as The Number One Globalization Site.
Global Research is classified among the top 50 Alternative News Sources by World-Newspapers.com, among the best alternative news sources by alternativenews.net/. Global Research is also recommended as a resource by the American Library Association (ALA).
In 2008, Global Research was 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.
