The UNESCO Centre at the University of Ulster aims to provide research on children and young people, education and conflict and international development that impacts debate locally and globally, contributing to a greater determination to enshrine the principles of education for Pluralism, Human Rights and Democracy around the world.
Building on from the work of the Chair, the UNESCO Centre was founded in 2001 and has, for the past ten years, engaged in research, development and teaching in the areas of:
During this time the Centre has built a national and international reputation. Our work has helped to define the debates around some of the most important international development issues, and we have helped to refine the thinking of those tasked with delivering just, equitable and workable solutions to these issues. In particular, our research in education and peacebuilding has been acknowledged as world leading and has helped to set the scene for some of the most important international development debates currently being addressed by international bodies, such as The World Bank, UNICEF, and UNESCO.
The work of the Centre involves:
- Funded research and development projects
- Collaborating with visiting academics and researchers
- Research studentships
- Study tours, seminars, and conferences
- Support to relevant teaching programmes within the School and Faculty
We currently produce a report detailing the Centre’s activities every few years.
