An interdisciplinary research team from the Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation (CESI) at Queen's University Belfast has been awarded a £2m grant.
Speaking of the new award, Professor Connolly, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have achieved this major new award. The grant is testament to the growing international reputation that CESI has for its innovative research in early intervention and prevention.
“Underpinning our new global programme of work is the belief that ECD services can make an important contribution towards sustainable development and promoting social cohesion in LMICs impacted by ethnic divisions and political violence. Through our planned programme of work, we aim to test this in a range of LMICs and to begin building a robust international evidence base to inform further work that reduces the impacts of violence on young children and helps to promote peacebuilding.”
