Inclusive and Cohesive Communities
As a University based in Belfast, we are proud of our longstanding and world leading track record in research relating to peace, identity, culture, conflict and social sustainability. Our lived experience of conflict as a society, its causes and its consequences, has helped drive our determination to deliver research excellence which impacts on the lives and livelihoods of communities across the world.
Whether that relates to governance, accountability and international relations, listening to and responding to the child’s perspective, understanding the need for creativity and cultural understanding, or valuing the role of heritage, languages and literatures in building inclusive and cohesive societies.
We will continue to work with our international partners to address the issues of fundamental rights, equality and social justice which lie at the heart of our mission.
