Our work is interdisciplinary and intercultural. It informs policy and practice in meaningful ways at local, regional, national and transnational levels. We use rigorous, best-practice multi-method approaches for conducting qualitative and quantitative research in the humanities and social sciences.
The Centre sits within the College of Arts and has a strong focus on building partnerships with a range of government, community and academic organisations, from Melbourne's west to state, national and international networks.
If you are interested in becoming a part of CCDW, you can join the centre to become a research associate or an affiliate if you are a VU staff member or a higher degree by research (HDR) student.
We also have a number of external research affiliates who work in other organisations allied with CCDW's focus and interests.
