Projects per year
The Centre for Remote and Rural Studies work to address the social, economic, environmental and cultural opportunities and challenges facing remote and rural places and people. They do this through conducting high quality research, stimulating public debate and the analysis and evaluation of policy options that secure the long term wellbeing of remote and rural regions, such as the Highlands and Islands.
We focus on two cross-cutting themes :
Access and inclusion – an emphasis on social inequalities ( e.g. poverty , social exclusion/inclusion, discrimination, etc.) in remote and rural areas among diverse groups /households (e.g. low income, those with mental health, different ethnic groups, migrants, etc.).
Sustainability and change – particularly in the context of economic and social changes, neoliberalism, local-global linkages, climate change, demographics, migration and technological advances within the context of remote and rural areas.
