CALACS produces and disseminates policy-oriented research to advance knowledge and support policy-making on issues affecting ALAC countries, their relations with India, and policy coalitions and institutions of the Global South (i.e. IBSA, BRICS and NDB). In order to achieve this goal, CALACS partners with other JGU research centers and institutions working with/in ALAC countries to establish joint research frameworks, faculty exchange programs, and international publication ventures. CALACS publishes monthly newsletters containing analyses of current events in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean by CALACS analysts and guest experts.  

CALACS also publishes two series: Working Papers, which highlight scholarly research on ALAC countries; and Policy Papers, which focuses on current issues in public policy. JGU faculty and students, invited guests, and associate institutions and individuals are encouraged to submit their work for publication through the CALACS Working Papers series. CALACS Policy Papers series are a product of CALACS research programs or independent, on-demand advisory services provided by CALACS faculty and associate institutions and individuals to partner governments, donor agencies and other entities.
