Conference Resources

Following the International Conference on Living With Difference in September 2012, this webpage has been developed as a resource for anyone interested in developing new ways of “living with difference”. The Research Projects section lists research projects related to the issues of “living with difference”. The Publications section lists relevant publications and unpublished papers and, wherever possible, provides links to those publications.
