Event Details

  • The UNESCO Chair on Community-based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education has been mandated by UNESCO to promote the practice of community-based research with a view to strengthen the linkages between communities and institutions of higher education. It has been arranged that Dr. Budd Hall at University of Victoria, Canada and Dr. Rajesh Tandon, Society for Participatory Research in Asia, New Delhi are co-chairs, in a unique south-north partnership between academia and civil society.

    The progress in science and technology has brought considerable benefits for many, but the associated rapid growth, increasing technology and consumerism has also left a legacy of poverty, social exclusion, cultural corrosion, illiteracy and environmental deterioration. We believe that the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) can no longer continue to stand aloof and disconnected from this scenario. In fact it needs to create opportunities and become spaces of encounter where students and communities of the 21st century can learn together to become more active, engaged citizens in the creation of knowledge for a more just and sustainable world.

    In the above context Society for Participatory Research in Asia in collaboration with Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi has organized the launch of UNESCO Chair on Community-based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education and a symposium on this theme.
