Abstract

Universities’ responsiveness to local communities’ needs, and to informing and understanding social change, is important for serving the public good and
building trust in this public institution by eroding the exclusions which have characterised the ‘ivory tower’. Such responsiveness may be enacted through
the university’s functions of (higher) education, research or third mission engagements. A recent study considered such responsiveness in Northern
Ireland (NI), by exploring the state of academic research enquiry about, and with, local populations who are marginalised in that context because of their
positioning as ‘ethnic minorities’ or ‘migrants’ (Belluigi & Moynihan, 2023).
