The Centre for International Governance Innovation
The Centre for International Governance Innovation is the last stop on this mini tour of Waterloo. It is next to the Seagram Lofts and attached to the old Seagram Museum. I think it is a beautiful combination of historic architecture and new. Amazing things happen here. Below is the description from their web site. Click on the link above and watch the video on their site for a good overview of what happens here.
(CIGI) is an independent, non-partisan think tank on international governance. Led by experienced practitioners and distinguished academics, CIGI supports research, forms networks, advances policy debate and generates ideas for multilateral governance improvements. Conducting an active agenda of research, events and publications, CIGI’s interdisciplinary work includes collaboration with policy, business and academic communities around the world.
CIGI’s research programs focus on four themes: the global economy; the environment and energy; global development; and global security. CIGI was founded in 2001 by Jim Balsillie, then co-CEO of Research In Motion, and collaborates with and gratefully acknowledges support from a number of strategic partners, in particular the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.
This is another typical HDR Shot.
