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.

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.
