The Forum' s main objectives are:

- to promote and improve the quality of grant applications to external funding bodies to undertake research in the area of postcolonialism or related fields.
- to identify potential sources of funding.
- to invite external academics to Queen's as visiting speakers, and to engage in joint research projects.
Queen's Postcolonial Research Forum also welcomes those working in areas such as:
ethnic conflict, imperialism, colonialism, nationalism, national identity, cultural identities, migration, decolonisation, globalisation, world trade, minorities, neo-imperialism, etc.
