How do we rebuild the world for the 21st century? Why are we studying cyber terrorism so carefully? How do we understand the world’s rising powers?
The map of global power is shifting.
To create a world that is more just and equal we must build relationships based on mutuality and reciprocity. To play a meaningful role in resolving global conflict and assist in the development of other countries, we need to develop a greater understanding of other cultures. To live in a peaceful world, we must develop ways to transform conflict into constructive relations.
King’s has established a network of Global Institutes to promote understanding of fast-changing parts of the world and encourage engagement with 21st century powers. They are designed to build connections – through study, staff and student exchange, research collaboration and knowledge sharing.
The King’s India Institute, headed by Avantha Professor and Director Sunil Khilnani, is committed to fostering long-range thinking on India's most essential dilemmas and to deepening international comprehension of the distinctive character of India's growth path and its challenges.
The Lau China Institute has, under the directorship of Professor Xinzhong Yao, already become a focal point in London for research and teaching on contemporary China.
The King's Brazil Institute, under the directorship of Professor Anthony Pereira, promotes an understanding of Brazil while developing the profile of Brazilian Studies at university level in the UK.
The Department of War Studies participates in national and international networks, maintaining its internationally-leading reputation for excellence in scholarship and policy-relevant research. The Department hosts The International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence (ICSR) which is the product of a unique partnership bringing together King's College London, the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, the University of Pennsylvania and the Regional Centre on Conflict Prevention, Amman.
King’s College London is one of the leading universities in the UK. It has been home to eight Nobel laureates and is ranked among the top 30 universities in the world. Its location in central London places it at the heart of the capital’s political, intellectual, artistic, legal, financial and commercial life.
We need your help to cultivate an expansive understanding of the mechanisms that will drive change in a globalised world.
