Project

DISCRIMINATION, DISTRESS AND HIGHER EDUCATION IN INDIA

Goal: This innovative and pioneering networking project was initiated by University College London (UCL) in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Dalit Studies (IIDS) and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi. The project objective is to engage and network with UK and India based scholars to focus on discrimination and distress among students from marginalized communities in higher education. Various reports and studies highlight discrimination and cultural psychological distress in Indian tertiary education. Yet this issue has received little attention in social sciences and mental health disciplines. To date, interventions to address such suffering remains undocumented in published literature. Insights generated from this project will be followed, subject to funding, by a major research programme to systematically address distress among marginalised communities in higher education and pilot an intervention with the help of cross-disciplinary collaborators.

The current project is funded by the British Academy - International Partnership and Mobility Grant, 2016-17. http://www.britac.ac.uk/
