A flagship for social transformation
The Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice is a Global Research Institute (GRI).
A flagship for interdisciplinary research in areas of major societal challenge, the GRI brings together excellent researchers from a wide range of disciplines to tackle some of the greatest global issues of our age.
Unparalleled expertise to bring about change
Questions about peace, security and justice dominate the discourse of governments, international agencies and civil society.
How can societies emerging from conflict resolve lingering grievances? How can they establish peace on a daily basis? How can the competing demands of justice, peace and security be resolved? The GRI responds to the challenge of building a peaceful, secure and inclusive world, bringing together the unparalleled expertise at Queen’s on these issues.
