About the narratives
The Institute’s Applied Research Centre produces bi-annual narratives that consolidate and interpret relevant research in a way that is digestible and practically usable by people and organisations working to build social cohesion in communities.
Each narrative focuses on an emerging issue or challenge, highlighting key lessons from available evidence on the subject, and outlining considerations for practical application.
