A bi-campus interdisciplinary research program that brings cutting-edge science and scholarship to bear on how global institutions, instruments and initiatives are designed.


The Global Strategy Lab is concerned with  the most pressing global challenges. Directed by Steven J. Hoffman and based at York University and the University of Ottawa, the Lab focuses on three priorities:

1. Generating evidence about different global strategies including when, how and why they can be used to tackle transnational health threats and social inequalities

2. Developing new analytic, empirical and big data methods for evaluating complex global strategies and using them to draw new insights about how to implement global agreements, goals and policies

3. Translating research into evidence-based collective action by working with governments, civil society organizations and international agencies in developing their global strategies and training the next generation of strategic thinkers and leaders in global governance, law and politics
