British Academy Bilateral Research Chair

The bilateral chair application involves Swansea University and two institutes within BRAC University, BIGD, and BRAC IED (BRAC Institute of Educational Development). BIGD has a small but growing portfolio of research on psychological and mental health as an instrument for socio-economic development. BIGD and BRAC IED teams will work closely in partnership on the design and content development for the website.
