Global priorities research

One definition of global priorities research is "research into issues that arise in response to the question, ‘What should we do with a given amount of limited resources if our aim is to do the most good?’" (GPI, n.d.) This can include finding and prioritising between different causes (see cause prioritization). It can also include "macrostrategy" or "foundational" research that'd inform cause prioritization in a less direct way (e.g., research into the Fermi paradox or whether we're living at the hinge of history).
