Diverse and Inclusive Communities

The Diverse and Inclusive Communities research cluster aims to foster and support cross-disciplinary research activity within the Arts and Social Sciences Discipline.

We are interested in:

  • Theorising, developing and evaluating innovative strategies that respond to the needs of diverse communities
  • Interrogating the borders and boundaries of communities – who is included and who is excluded – with a view to strengthening community connections and wellbeing for those who are commonly excluded
  • How people come together and collaborate to resolve their own issues and how they can access resources to which they are entitled
  • Exploring the philosophical and practical implications of such things as policy change, insecurity, climate change, social unrest, religious background and/or orientation, and natural disasters.

Current and recent projects include:
