The Cross-Border Institute at the University of Windsor was founded in 2008 under the direction of Professor Bill Anderson. The Centre approaches the study of border issues from a multi-disciplinary perspective that includes economic development, geography, engineering, management science and political science. The Centre's location steps away from the Windsor-Detroit border, where almost one-quarter of Canada-US trade takes place provides us with a unique perspective from which to study the impact of trends in cross border transportation and the impact of policy decisions by governments on both sides of the border.
