Collaborating Researchers of Project GLOW

Project GLOW is driven and guided by our global community, and is a long-term, 50 year project. At the end of 2019, GLOW has over 120 members from 26 countries. The administration will rotate every three years, currently it is undertaken by a team in New Zealand.  

The map below lists current collaborators in Project GLOW.

A research group identified as End Poverty and Inequality Cluster (EPIC) exists within the School of Psychology at Massey University and is the nominal site of this collaborative research project. It is closely supported in this project by Massey University’s MPOWER unit (Massey People, Organization, Work and Employment Relations) and the Global Organization for Humanitarian Work Psychology (GoHWP).
