CESI connects research evidence to solutions that improve the lives of children, families and communities. CESI’s focus on innovation shapes our approach to bringing together academic research with policy and practice need, to foster faster positive social change.
Our International Focus
We aim to give a clear message to potential collaborators that we are committed to addressing major social issues in a coordinated fashion. By doing so, we open up opportunities ranging from the local to the global level. Our themes illustrate the importance of working together across all disciplines to provide innovative approaches to global issues, meeting current and future needs of society and the economy. We have official partnerships with Chapin Hall, University of Chicago; the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre, National University Ireland Galway; the Palestinian Child Institute, An-Najah National University and the International Center for Education and Human Development (CINDE), Bogotá, Colombia, alongside numerous other international partners we work with on many other areas.
Our work is positioning three inter-related themes that map onto the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
Good Health & Wellbeing, Quality Education and Sustainable Cities and Communities.
We also link all our work to SDG 17, Partnerships for the goals.
