Queen's University's Social Charter commits us to the principles of equality and social justice. These principles are embodied in the following projects.
The ‘Welcoming Communities’ project is based in the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics (HAPP), and steered by Dr Timofey Agarin (Lead) and Dr Drew Mikhael (Co-Investigator).
The project aims to produce tangible outcomes, including an actionable policy plan to enhance migrant, minority ethnic and newcomer participation in social and economic life in the region, and a series of capacity building trainings with migrants and policymakers that will help address social inequalities for the former and assist in outreach for the latter.Welcoming Communities information
