Queen’s University Belfast is collaborating with two South African Universities, Rhodes University and the University of Fort Hare, in an important five-year programme to support inclusive and engaged research projects which seek to address socio-educational challenges in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. The process involves building networks for cross-institutional and international research projects to address global challenges. It is centred around the research of ten academic and professional staff members from the two South African universities, who share a commitment to create conducive research cultures which cross institutional and disciplinary divides. The research topics cut across a number of the Sustainable Development Goals, as do many of the research interests in the School of Social Science, Education and Social Work (SSESW) at QUB. Thus, as Visiting Scholars, each researcher from South Africa has been connected with their counter-parts at SSESW who are interested in building long-term research relationships and investing in their current projects, and all were offered the opportunity of presenting mini-papers during this visit to Belfast. This colloquium series is an opportunity for more openings for QUB staff and students to engage with the Visiting Scholars, and their scholarship, during their time in Belfast in June 2022.
