Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation

The Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation (ADI) is an internationally recognised and highly regarded social sciences and humanities research institute.

About us

Our researchers aim to understand the complex meanings of citizenship, social inclusion and globalisation, and investigate the implications of these forces in our lives and communities.

We seek to contribute to knowledge construction and influence research developments, public debates and policy agendas.

Our interdisciplinary team of researchers is led by our Director, Alfred Deakin Professor Fethi Mansouri. Learn more about our team, or find information about ADI membership for current Deakin staff, job opportunities, visiting researcher expressions of interest and HDR applications.
