Interdisciplinary Approaches to Meeting Long Term Challenges

Professor Ian Goldin is the Director of the Oxford Martin School and Professor of Globalisation and Development at the University of Oxford. The Oxford Martin School is the leading global interdisciplinary research centre on major global challenges, with over 350 academics from 50 disciplines.

During his fellowship at STIAS Professor Goldin’s principal research aim is to develop a framework and research methodologies for the undertaking of interdisciplinary research. This will reconcile the growing specialisation of academics in top tier Universities and the fragmentation of disciplines into increasingly narrow silos, with the needs to provide integrated multidisciplinary perspectives to address increasingly complex global challenges.

While at STIAS Professor Goldin also will write a number of articles drawing on his most recent books The Pursuit of Development (Oxford University Press, 2016) and Age of Discovery (Bloomsbury, 2016) and update his book Exceptional People on migration (Princeton University Press, 2011).
