Professional Learning Communities (PLC) in the Global South: a Systematic Literature Review

This project funded by VVOB Education for Development in Brusselswith a grant of €29,658 is led by CR&DALL core member, Professor Ellen Boeren and also involves Dr Srabani Maitra, also a CR&DALL core member, and Dr Dong Nguyen, a lecturer in the School of Education. It consists of a systematic literature review on Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) in the Global South and addresses six research questions:

Local, place-based, and community-driven approaches to peacebuilding

The project, Local, place-based, and community-driven approaches to peacebuilding, is supported under the British Academy/Leverhulme Small Research Grant programme with funding of £9,803. Globally, post-conflict and transitional societies statistically relapse into violence and conflict within ten years (UNESCO, 2014) due to the state of fragility and crises conflicts create in their borders – the vicious cycle they are struggling to break away from.

This briefing paper highlights some of the more specific policies for the city of Medellin (Colombia) from 2004 to 2019, which contributed to reducing the rates of violence by focusing on developing community cohesion while tackling both crime and inequality. It contributes to the overall research project which seeks to create a detailed understanding of the infrastructure, engagement, resources and policies required to educationally transform a community and move towards peacebuilding.

Project Launch | Gendered Journeys: the trajectories of STEM students and graduates through higher education and into employment in India and Rwanda

Project Launch | Gendered Journeys

This project will investigate how far, and in what ways, gender may have an influence in the progress of students through higher education, graduation and progression into skilled employment in the STEM sector in India and Rwanda. This is important because science has a critical role in supporting global sustainable development that will not be realised unless it makes better use of the potential skills of women and girls.

COVID-19 and the Geography of Vulnerability

The year 2020 is illuminating important differences in the geography of vulnerability. People across the United States have had vastly different experiences of COVID-19 and the many societal stresses exacerbated by or directly resulting from the pandemic. Geographers have the capacity to integrate local and population-scale research, yet examples of this type of integration are rare among studies of vulnerability.
