Welcome to the Munk School of Global Affairs.
At the Munk School, we believe that the world needs better public policy and better governance. Citizens of all countries deserve greater security, wider opportunity, and the chance to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
We draw together the most creative minds, people whose research can improve our collective future. We educate great students who move seamlessly across disciplines to tackle global problems. We engage our community by convening enlightening discussions, and by identifying and sharing opportunities for action.
Our School unites people who are passionate to address the problems of a fast-changing world. Innovation for the poor, urban development and sustainability, security threats from countries jostling for position, cyber insecurity, seeking justice in a world of conflict, rich cultural connections and deep divisions — all are engaged by our remarkable faculty and staff, working with partners from across the globe.
I encourage you to take advantage of all that we offer. Explore the rich resources on this website. Join our events in person and through social media; tune in live to webcasts featuring leaders in global affairs; share in our research from experts from around the world; read reports addressing complex issues ranging from innovation in urban regions to sharing fresh water.
Please join us in the global conversation.
