Welcome to the UNESCO Chair

UNESCO’s UNITWIN and Chairs programme promotes international cooperation and networking to mobilise collaboration around the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 and in key priority areas related to UNESCO’s fields of competence – education, natural and social sciences, culture and communication. 

The UNESCO Chair (incepted Jan 2017) supports learning from contexts which have long-term refugee and migratory experiences and where resilience has been developed, often in the face of overwhelming linguistic and cultural destruction.  Working with our cross-sectorial partners, we engage in research and advocacy for creative and artistic approaches to integration, which sustain linguistic and cultural diversity, foster creativity and intercultural capabilities and promote peace. 

We work closely with Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration Network (GRAMNet).
