International Development Research Centre (IDRC)

The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) has partnered with CIGI and Ipsos on a project that gathers data relating to the online experiences of women and members of the LGBTQ+ community. By conducting statistical surveys, researchers have been able to study online gender-based violence (OGBV) and its effects, with a focus on Asia, Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa. The information gathered from these surveys will help governments and development sectors design responses to OGBV by regulating social media platforms and through educational programs and legal recourse.

Balsillie School of International Affairs

The Balsillie School of International Affairs is a unique three-way partnership among CIGI, Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo. It is a model of innovation, fostering the highest quality of academic experience and affording faculty and students the opportunity to work with the expertise and resources available at a private think tank. 

Forum on Information and Democracy

In November 2019, CIGI joined 10 other organizations to create the Forum on Information and Democracy, a new international entity led by Reporters Without Borders, to implement the International Partnership on Information and Democracy, an agreement signed by a coalition of 30 states on the margins of the UN General Assembly in 2018.
