About the Globalisation InstituteThe Globalisation Institute is a think tank founded in 2005 with the aim of examining how globalisation can be harnessed to work for the world's poorest.

We are philosophically ‘liberal’, regarding the Manchester School anti-Corn Law campaigners like Richard Cobden and John Bright as our key intellectual influences. We were officially launched at a reception at Soho House in June 2005 with speeches by Bill Emmott, Editor of the Economist, and Alan Beattie, World Trade Editor of the Financial Times.

We believe that globalisation is a force for good. Only by integrating the poorest into the world economy can we put an end to the poverty that still blights much of world today.

The Institute is politically-independent, working with policy-makers regardless of party. It works through research and events, helping to mould the public debate among opinion formers and the media.

He hailed microfinance as a truly important idea and talked about the golden thread of international development linking property rights, free markets, free trade, the rule of law, honest government, sound finances, economic progress and social advance.
