Research is one of the key strands of the DICE Project. DICE supports research that: builds capacity within and across the partner institutions; relates directly to development education and intercultural education; profiles and disseminates the impact and outcomes of DICE; and contributes to the improved design and delivery of DICE. Collaborative projects are encouraged.
