GRAMNet Collaborative Masters Dissertation Pilot Project Degree Show.

We would like to invite you to the Degree Show of the GRAMNET Collaborative Masters Dissertation Pilot Project!

The 2011 collaborative dissertation projects were developed at the University of Glasgow by the Glasgow Refugee Asylum Migration Network (GRAMNet) and Central and East European Studies based on the research needs and proposals from a range of public and third sector organisations.

These topics were then matched with six masters students studying on the MSc in Russian and on the MSc in Equalities and Human Rights, both of which were administered through the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow.

The 2011 projects:
• Russian Language Teaching in Scottish Schools - Scotland Russia Forum
• Social and Economic Integration of Russian-speaking women - Bridges Programmes
• Education of Bilingual Children in Russian-speaking Communities - RCS Haven
• Public Perception of A8 Migrants - BEMIS
• Migration and Settlement in Glasgow - Glasgow City Council
• An early intervention Rights-Based approach to the protection and support of people entering the asylum system in Glasgow - Unity Centre
The event will feature a series of short presentations by Knowledge Exchange Partners from the organisations involved in the pilot as well as members of GRAMNet. The students will also present some of their findings and share their experiences of undertaking a collaborative research project with an internship. There will also be an opportunity for informal networking and discussion towards the end.

This initiative
will be repeated in 2011-12 and the Degree show offers an opportunity for new Knowledge Exchange Partners and Postgraduate Students to see what can be gained from engaging with this collaborative research programme.
Please feel free to circulate this invitation further to other stakeholders, students and PG programme leaders as appropriate.Light refreshments will be served.
