CGLR seeks to work closely with scholars in other labour centres or engaged in work on labour issues from across the globe. To promote dialogue the Centre operates an academic visitor programme, which in most years brings several labour academics to Cardiff. Many of these visitors are funded by the Montague Burton Fellowship scheme within Cardiff Business School.
