Research Impact

Social scientists in our Faculty conduct research that addresses human, environmental, societal and political questions relevant to the changing world.  Our scholarship contributes new knowledge and forms the basis for behavioural and professional practices and policy changes.  To achieve impact we enhance the reach of our work and embed its significance through engaging diverse beneficiaries and contributing to a wide range of pure and applied, local and global research. 


Our research has reached the general public, private sectors, professional bodies and both governmental and non-governmental organizations.  Some examples are listed below:
