Open Data for Race Equality?

27 November 2012, Middlesex University

Runnymede Trust and Middlesex University’s Social Policy Research Centre are working in partnership to organize a one-day seminar and capacity building event on the government’s ‘Open Data’ agenda and its impact on Race Equality in the UK. More generally, the event will discuss changes in how public data is funded, collected and made accessible to the general public and how the community sector can use data for advocacy and to hold local and national government to account.

An evaluation of Paiwand education services

The Impacts, Challenges and Sustainability Issues of Supplementary Education in London. An evaluation of Paiwand education services

Research Team: Prof Louise Ryan, Alessio D’Angelo, Magdolna Lorinc

The research project aims to evaluate and compare the effectiveness of the education services offered by Afghan Association Paiwand: supplementary classes for Afghan children, on one hand; and weekend school for children referred by their mainstream schools – who are not necessarily Afghan – on the other. In addition, sustainability issues and funding potentials will be assessed too.

This work is funded through the Third Sector Research Centre.
