Duke University Center for International and Global Studies


The Duke University Center for International and Global Studies (DUCIGS) grounds its research, teaching, and programming on the deep, region and culture-specific knowledge and experience of its organizational units while exploring global topics, pursuing interdisciplinary and cross-regional collaboration, and welcoming new approaches within areas studies and global studies. 

The mission of DUCIGS is to:

  • Support, engage, and connect researchers, students, departments, and schools to work on international issues
  • Promote interdisciplinary research and education to understand and engage with challenging global issues
  • Support and coordinate the activities of the area studies centers, councils, and initiatives

We are located in the John Hope Franklin Center for Interdisciplinary and International Studies on Duke’s Central Campus near the Duke Medical Center and the VA hospital, and across from the C4 and C5 bus stops.  To receive information about our upcoming events, please subscribe to our mailing list.
