It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Global Center for Advanced Studies Research Institute, Ireland (GCAS-RII). GCAS was founded in 2013 by over 100 leading intellectuals, writers, philosophers, and social scientists with a two-fold aim: (a) providing students with the highest quality education at the lowest costs possible; and (b) providing a learning environment bold enough to forge new horizons of thinking and being in-the-world.
What began as a dream has developed into a global network in which hundreds of seminars, workshops, lectures, conferences and hundreds of thousands of people have engaged and extended a needed and new paradigm of thinking together, collectively.
GCAS is located in New York City, Dublin, Ireland, and a new center is opening in Santiago, Chile in a few months. At GCAS-RII we offer a PhD degree in Social and Political Thought, which is awarded by us, whilst we seek accreditation in Europe and elsewhere.
We believe that learning and growing intellectually is crucial for our time so that we can apply bold, new and innovative ways of understanding our world for the betterment of our planet so that more and more people can flourish together.
Welcome to GCAS!
Creston Davis, PhD
