Crossing Borders to Connect Routes. Researching with educational communities to promote equity and fight racism towards immigrants in a post-pandemic world.
March 2022 – April 2025
This project explores a once-in-a-lifetime topic across five countries on three continents: the deepening of educational inequities affecting racialized and minoritized migrants around the world in the context of COVID-19. Based on a transnational case study using participatory research techniques, our analysis will not only yield constructive insights into the emergent literature on inequalities associated with COVID-19 but also contribute to identifying and transfering new approaches to fostering equity through policy and practice. The research is led by Nodes research group at Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, with the participation of five more universities: University of New York (USA), University of Wisconsin (USA), University of Malta (Malta), Federal University of Goiás (Brazil), University of the Republic (Uruguay). The project is coordinated by Dr. Amalia Creus and Dr. Adriana Ornellas.
