BIG Project Update
BIG was launched in the summer of 2013. The last 24 months have been very intense for all involved in the research program. We moved quickly onto establishing our Advisory Boards and focused in particular on getting feedback on our research assumptions and research strategy. We also worked hard at aligning research methodologies across all the areas of social science and humanities that are involved in the research program. We have active social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter, which allow us to engage with interested stakeholders around the world.
We are looking forward to working closely with our non-academic partners and building on our research agenda to ensure that our findings impact border policy. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our diverse group of scholars, advisory board members and students for making the first two years of the Borders in Globalization research program a fascinating and entrepreneurial adventure in the worlds of social sciences and humanities.
