I resolutely believe that respect for diversity is a fundamental pillar in the eradication of racism, xenophobia and intolerance. There is no excuse for evading the responsibility of finding the most suitable path toward the elimination of any expression of discrimination against Indigenous peoples.
Our vision is to be a leading international social sciences and humanities institute. We want our knowledge creation and dissemination to meaningfully affect lived human experiences by actively shaping agendas and informing debates.
We aim to understand complex social issues associated with globalising processes through innovative, mixed-method multidisciplinary research. Our focus is on sharing our research through practical channels, engaging in partnerships and supporting high-quality researchers and doctoral students. We'll contribute to knowledge construction and influence research developments, public debates and policy agendas.
