Dr Muir Houston, Deputy Director of CR&DALL opened the webinar and provided an overview of logistics for the 80+ delegates and panellists. Professor Michael Osborne, Director of Research in the School of Education, began formal proceedings and introduced Professor Margery McMahon, Head of School, who welcomed delegates. Professor Osborne then explained that in this webinar with its theme of Urban and Place Based Learning, we would be hearing from representatives of four of the school’s major projects in this area, some very local to the city of Glasgow and others that involved cities and neighbourhoods in the global south.

This briefing paper focusses on the role of stakeholders in peacebuilding which are defined as actors coming together to participate and cooperate at different levels for the sake of building peaceful societies. We aim to showcase that the active participation of different actors and organisations has a significant impact on the development of peacebuilding projects.

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.

CR&DALL Themes: 

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

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.

Over the past six months, qualitative researchers have had little choice but to try to change and adapt our usual methods; switching new and existing research projects to often completely different ways of working. This is particularly relevant when we consider how best to conduct and manage qualitative research on poverty during the time of COVID-19.

COVID-19 and the Geography of Vulnerability

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.

How can we measure development? Recent years have witnessed concerns regarding effective management and results-oriented approach to development projects and programmes. The discourse has gained further momentum with the adoption of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Targets and Indicators. The quest for the impact of development interventions has been intensified as the message “Leaving No One Behind” gets loud and clear.

CR&DALL Themes: 

Educational Peacebuilding in Medellin and Acapulco: Understanding the role of education, culture and learning in responding to crises

This project funded within by the British Academy through the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy via the Global Challenges Research Fund from March 2020 to December 2021 seeks to create a detailed understanding of the infrastructure, engagement, resources and policies required to educationally transform a community in order to contribute to reducing the negative impacts of drug-related violence and crime.
