The Unit’s strong focus on cross-disciplinarity, collaboration and participation shapes the character of our funded research projects and the nature of our regional, national and international partnerships as formed across voluntary, non-profit, public and commercial sectors. In each of these contexts our researchers bring new perspectives and innovative creative methodologies to address key historical and present-day social, cultural and economic challenges and concerns.
