The Alfred Deakin Institute of Citizenship and Globalisation is one of the world’s largest and most influential social sciences and humanities research institutes and home to researchers from the Australian Intervention Support Hub. Based at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia, ADI researchers seek to understand how the complex and often contradictory meanings of citizenship, social inclusion and globalisation at the local, national and transnational levels play out in people’s lives and communities. ADI researchers are often at the forefront of national debates and policy setting on migration; radicalisation and violent extremism, the tensions of transnational governance, experiences of identity and belonging, the links between heritage and citizenship; the critical importance of cultural heritage; the lived politics of inclusion and exclusion, the human rights’ discourse and related questions of justice and development.
Deakin University combines a university’s traditional focus on excellent teaching and research with a desire to seek new ways of developing and delivering courses. Deakin has won several awards for its teaching and learning excellence – testament to its excellent facilities, flexible study options and courses which are informed by industry professionals.
