Research with impact

Our research is making a difference locally and globally, including with many of the world’s least advantaged groups.

Humanities have a range of flagship centres, institutes and networks working collaboratively across disciplines to conduct significant research that addresses society’s most pressing issues of fairness.

This includes research undertaken on a variety of issues, including:

  • global health inequalities;
  • poverty;
  • education;
  • access to natural resources;
  • conflict;
  • ageing;
  • climate change;
  • gender; and
  • class and ethnicity.
