The Iraq Hub runs a series of research investigations and public engagement activities for the study, analysis of policy advocacy of ‘Humanitarian Heritage’ in Middle East as a human-centric approach to cross-community, country, region collaborations around community heritage. We develop and link knowledge transfer between the ENGAGE Network's international partners and investigators and enable collaborative workshops with stakeholders, research partners and community representatives from regional chapters. These workshops will explore research methodologies, approaches and challenges to the models of partnership hubs.
The workshops are designed to operate a number of engagements, meetings and focus group interviews to map local and regional perspectives in the co-design and co-production of heritage research priorities, challenges and creative solutions, as part of the ENGAGE Network's research agenda, methodology and delivery plan. ENGAGE enables and facilitates collaborative research with partners and stakeholders in the global south to investigate strategies to counter cultural conflict rhetoric through inclusive education, heritage-centred growth, rural development and infrastructures of peace. The multi-disciplinary team includes specialists from politics, social sciences, human rights, heritage, tourism, archaeology, architecture, economics, museums and education.
We display here the latest reports, research and analysis of case studies in the the Middle East
first hand evidence from engaging with partners, communities and policy makers.
