University networks get £9m to tackle development challenges

The Arts and Humanities Research Council has allocated a total of £9 million from the Global Challenges Research Fund to five interdisciplinary research networks addressing international development challenges.

The funding has been distributed to the five universities leading the networks, which have been set up to explore how an arts and humanities approach can be used to respond to challenges in specific geographical regions.

The University of Liverpool will focus on human rights to tackle the problem of slavery in sub-Saharan Africa, engaging with antislavery non-governmental organisations and other partners in Ghana, Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
