Centre for Research on Globalisation (Montreal)
The Centre for Research on Globalisation, a registered non-profit in Montreal, Quebec, Canada was opened on September 9, 2001 and maintains a website at globalreasearch.ca. The organisation is a nonprofit think tank that focuses its energies on economic, political, social, global and environmental issues. It is an independent research, publishing and media production organisation.
Besides the global website, the Centre publishes a variety of books on related topics and supports various educational and humanitarian projects, events and conferences. Its intent has been to cover newsworthy aspects of the global community that the mainstream media does not bother to cover or at times does not acknowledge. In the words of the organisation, it is important for them to focus on the "unspoken truth," since many media organisations put out disinformation. Global Research has helped the world of journalism through the dissemination of highly specialised research and resultant information, in particular surrounding the US invasion of Iraq and run-up to war on Iran.
Since its founding in 2001, globalresearch.ca has developed a French website at www.mondialisation.ca and has evolved pages in Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Serbian, Arabic languages and thus its reach has broadened significantly.
The Centre for Research on Globalisation, or CRG, has established a global network of authors who are educators, writers, researchers, investigative journalists and scholars in all fields. Many young, but well qualified writers are also making valuable contributions to the organisation. Several Global Research authors have been given awards for their work in print. Many are sponsoring important blog sites.
In 2010, Global Research TV (GRTV) was started in an effort to promote and share video productions along with commentaries. It is an important website for news coverage and the analysis of certain news items. The CRG solicits respectful comments on the videos.
The Mexican Press Club honored the Centre for Research on Globalisation as being the best website to present global news on an international scale. This was the very first Mexican national prize to be awarded by this group, in 2008.
