EDI poster

A wide range of streams is being welcome about all types of research questions and strands of diversity. We welcome divergent thinking and challenging questions that help create spaces for the exchange of brave new ideas on social solidarity, diversity, equality and inclusion; explorations into forgotten areas and uncharted territories as well as exploitation of existing ideas with new interpretations and in different contexts; discovering and bringing to the fore of opportunities for innovative disruptions; focus on unusual organizational settings and new methods’ combinations; learning from other ‘languages’, those of philosophy, psychology, economics, and political science.

There will be a doctoral colloquium under the supervision of Dr Joana Vassilopoulou and Dr Dorota Bourne.
