The International Centre for Research in Organizational Discourse, Strategy and Change was launched in 2001. It has since grown to include the following institutional partners: the University of Melbourne; the University of Sydney; Cardiff University; City University London; Lund University; McGill University; Texas A&M University; the University of California; the University of Cambridge; the University of Colorado; the University of Leicester; Meiji University; and VU University, Amsterdam.


The Centre links international researchers who share an interest in developing and applying discourse methods in the study of organizations. It brings together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds, provides a critical mass in research expertise, facilitates cross-disciplinary research, provides a banner for new research initiatives, provides contacts and support for doctoral students, and provides resources for workshops, studies, and other activities.
