Nottingham Co-Investigator: Prof Joanna McIntyre

Prof Joanna McIntyre, Associate Professor, School of Education, University of Nottingham. She has worked on a range of funded research projects in the field of refugee education and is particularly interested in how, through Education, we can improve the lives of those who are marginalized or disadvantaged by society. Her research has considered the barriers and opportunities schools face when working to support refugee children in Europe. Questions around inclusion and integration have emerged as a notable concern in this research, around who is rendered visible or invisible through policy and practice. Language also emerges as a factor, as language proficiency is often used as a proxy for academic ability. She is particularly interested in this project as it extends her existing work to the African context, and she contributes her experience of working with refugees and their families to the project.
