Further Information

Professor McAndrew specializes in the education of minorities and intercultural education. She has worked extensively in research and policy development and evaluation in this field. She also co‑ordinates the Research Group on Ethnicity and Adaptation to Pluralism in Education (GREAPE).

During her time at the Centre Professor McAndrew shared her extensive experience and expertise in immigration, integration, education and ethnic relations with the research staff working in the centre and developed plans for a joint research meeting between staff from the University of Ulster and the University of Montreal on themes of pluralism and diversity. In addition, she gave a public lecture entitled ‘The Relationship between Francophones and Anglophones in Quebec: The Role of Education’ to an appreciative audience of researchers, education practitioners and university staff in that same month, and organised with research staff a conference that was to be held the following May.
