The St Andrews Centre for Cosmopolitan Studies (formerly CASKE) exists to explore the implications and the possibilities of Cosmopolitanism, which is understood as compassing: the complexity of global social and cultural settings; the experience of the individual citizen; and the openness of a just society. The Centre promotes an egalitarian, existentially sensitive, social science which seeks to place individual experience at the centre of an appreciation of contemporary social and cultural milieux, for the purpose of adumbrating the ethical space of the citizen in a plural and fluid society.

The Centre convenes seminars and conferences, hosts visiting fellows, funds studentships and publishes the results of its research. The Centre also collaborates with other researchers, projects and research institutions. In all it promotes deliberation on a set of issues (identity, social inclusion, migration, recognition, entitlement, sovereignty, belonging and rights) fundamental for a knowledge of, and purchase upon, the individual membership of social and cultural milieux in the twenty-first century.
