Our work is centred around anticipating and responding to the changing needs of families, livelihoods, and living environments through research, teaching, and knowledge sharing. Knowledge sharing includes policy-relevant and community-engaged activities.
We work in five mutually reinforcing areas:
- Research Activities
- Student Engagement and Development
- Community Engagement
- Communities of Practice
- Knowledge Mobilization
Beginning from the margins, our research is focused on five intersecting research clusters, with each cluster exploring complex themes and the ways they influence work, family and well-being in all their diverse forms. When we look at the research within and across each cluster and beyond, we explore the effects on diverse families and individual well-being, changes in work and livelihoods, factors that shape work and family relationships, needed policy changes and community actions.
