  • Provide programmes of seminars, colloquia and conferences to develop scholarly exchange
  • Promote research excellence and provide a research base for developing theories, practices and policies in this field
  • Make research accessible by disseminating results of research activities to academics, policy makers, practitioners working in the field and the public
  • Provide interdisciplinary networking opportunities for those working in the field
  • Develop programmes of collaborative taught provision at doctoral and master's levels.
