1. Foreword by the Pro Vice Chancellor(Research and Innovation)I am particularly delighted to provide the Foreword tothis year’s Annual Reports. Research and Innovation at theUniversity of Ulster continues to grow and to make majorcontributions to the economic, social and cultural wellbeingof Northern Ireland and beyond. This past year has seenus climb to a position where we are in the top third ofresearch institutions in the country and are, again, amongstthe top performers in the UK in translating our researchand research expertise into significant economic benefit.In reading the annual reports from University of UlsterResearch Institutes I am confident that you will find the research undertaken atUlster to have more than fulfilled expectations over the past year.The University’s reputation for high quality research was independently confirmedthrough the results of the most recent Research Assessment Exercise. The overallperformance places Ulster in the top third of the UK institutions with three Unitsin the top three and eleven in the top twenty as measured against peers. This isour best ever performance and confirms our strategy on quality, selectivity andsupporting environment. Our exceptional performance in the RAE has boostedour efforts to attract high-calibre research staff to work alongside our existinginternationally strong teams, in attracting external research and other incomeand in completing work that has led to highly prestigious papers, books and otherkey performance outputs.We are now in a very strong and confident position as we prepare for the nextnational assessment due in 2013. This year we produced a new Research Strategyto provide us with an appropriate quality framework that will support our futuresubmission to the newly designed Research Excellence Framework (REF). The newapproach to assessment through the REF will present many challenges, particularly inrelation to the new Impact category and in the administrative structures. We embarkupon this process with great confidence and expectation having evidenced another verystrong performance in the translation of our research expertise into economic, socialand cultural benefits. There continues to be a very strong flow of research findingscoming out of our research activities this year, many as new disclosures, adding to ourintellectual property portfolio. We continue to exploit this asset through knowledge andtechnology transfer activities managed through our Office of Innovation.University of Ulster research teams were awarded grants totalling over £29M for theacademic year 2008/9, up almost £18M on the previous year. During the same periodResearch Capital funding totalled £8M and the University’s Research Council incomewas approximately £3M. A particularly pleasing aspect of our grant income profile showsthat grants were awarded to each of our six faculties and across all four campuses,highlighting research excellence throughout the University.Cross border research projects funded by the Department for Employment andLearning (DEL) under its Cross Border R&D Funding Programme accounted forthe substantial increase in research funding from previous years with five Ulsterresearch teams awarded grants totalling £7.7M to conduct collaborative researchprojects with sister universities in the Republic of Ireland.I am, of course, delighted but not surprised at this superb performance sinceexternal funders of research only allocate funding where they are confident thatquality exists and Ulster’s recent research activity is evidence of that quality. It is,however, particularly pleasing to record such a level of funding during a period22388- SOCIAL POLICY REP-02-10.indd 2 18/2/10 12:31:07


when there has been significant pressure on the economy in general and financein particular. It is gratifying that funders have confidence in the quality of our workand are assured that it will reap benefits in the future.In addition to the annual allocation of DEL postgraduate studentships of £4.91M,this year, the University received just over £1.41M in support of 78 new andcontinuing DEL funded PhD studentships to be held in research areas thathave specific relevance to the Northern Ireland economy; thus allowing furtherdevelopment of R&D talent essential for innovation in business and the publicsector. This funding enables Ulster to support 272 full-time research studentswith a further 123 full-time awards supported from a range of other sources offunding.The University, through its research and outreach activity, makes a significantcontribution on the local and world stages. Our staff inform both policydevelopment at regional and national level and are leaders in gaining understandingof the many global challenges facing us in today’s world.I trust that you will enjoy reading the Report and I commend it to you as evidencethat research at the University of Ulster ranks highly amongst UK institutions.Professor ND BlackPro Vice Chancellor (Research & Innovation)32388- SOCIAL POLICY REP-02-10.indd 3 18/2/10 12:31:07


2. Foreword by the Research Institute DirectorAt the time of writing SPRI has expanded to include a cluster around Communicationand Linguistics thereby bringing the total number of researchers up toover 40. This expansion, together with the growth of early career researcherswho have achieved ‘development status’, provides evidence of the extent towhich SPRI now represents a major thrust to research based in the Faculty ofSocial Sciences. Almost a year from the outcome of the 2008 Research AssessmentExercise we are already deeply involved in the preparations for the2013 Research Excellence Framework (REF) both in responding to the initialConsultation but also the in UOA 40 (Social Policy and Social Work) being aparticipant in the pilot programme for developing the methodology surroundingthe measurement of ‘impact’ of research. This exercise will extend into themiddle of 2010 and will provide a good basis to understand the thinking behindthe guidance that will be issued to all universities concerning how the ‘impact’of research will be measured in the REF.On a personal note, this is my final report as Director of SPRI and the compilationof the 2009/10 report will fall to my successor. Since the creation ofResearch Institutes in 2005, they have become a secure way of building researchcapacity and encouraging high level performance for the University. The Universityof Ulster’s overall research profile has clearly benefited by the selectivityand quality, which must underpin the work of all Research Institutes. Therewill always be tensions in managing the twin tasks of teaching and conductingresearch but through the creation of Research Institutes, there seems to be aneffective mechanism for managing that interface and enhancing research performance.The Social Sciences (and the Humanities) have a clear role in society, whichoften gets lost in the politicians’ simplistic equating of science, technology,engineering and mathematics with economic and thereby, social progress, As theBritish Academy recently noted in its response to the REF Consultation.“The fundamental premise of our submission is that no society can call itselfprosperous and civilised unless it takes seriously the health and vitality of thehumanities and social sciences (HSS). HSS disciplines play an indispensable rolein the intellectual, cultural, economic and political life of this and other countries.They transmit an understanding of social and personal relations betweengenerations, provide the evidence, forms of enquiry and means of interpretationfor such understanding and contribute to public life more broadly through publishing,performance and exhibitions. Their contributions to social, political andcultural wellbeing are essential elements in the quality of collective and individuallife and in the development of intercultural understanding within and betweensocieties. Moreover, excellent HSS research underpins excellence in teaching.As with the natural sciences, HSS disciplines provide these benefits through thefruits of curiosity-driven research”.(The British Academy’s Contribution to HEFCE’s REF consultation, November 26, 2009)Fortunately, the University of Ulster recognises the substantial contributionmade to social, cultural and economic well being by the Social Sciences: may thislong continue.Bob Osborne42388- SOCIAL POLICY REP-02-10.indd 4 18/2/10 12:31:08


3. Social Policy & Social Work ResearchThe highlight of this year for this research grouping came with the results of RAE2008 which saw the group of 16achieving a result with 60% of its activities rated as either world leading in terms of originality, significance or rigour(4*) or quality of international excellence (3*). This result saw the group into the top 20 in the UK – by far the bestresult achieved for this discipline since the RAE began over 20 years ago. The outcome, which was the equivalentof a 5* result when measured by the scoring system used in 2001, was achieved largely through senior researchersdelivering in the quality of their outputs and their substantial contributions to the research environment. Activitiesduring this year have continued to build on this measure of success. Professor Vani Borooah was elected to theRoyal Irish Academy while Professor Bob Osborne was elected to the Academy for Social Sciences. ProfessorSiddiq Osmani obtained a Visiting Research Fellowship jointly funded by the ESRC and the Indian Council for SocialScience Research, which brought Dr Vikas Rawal of Jawaharlal Nehru University to work with him on aspects ofrural poverty in India. Professor Deidre Heenan took up an ESRC Placement Fellowship with the Office of Firstand Deputy First Minister to assist researchers there with analyzing access of older people in rural areas to publicservices. Dr Patricia Lundy was awarded a substantial award from the Leverhulme Trust to examine the ‘Policy ofthe Past in Northern Ireland’. Dr Una Convery completed a study of ‘Best Practice in Addressing Offending byWomen’ funded by the NIO while Dr Convery and Dr Linda Moore are part of a team which has received funding toresearch the rights of children with imprisoned parents in Europe. The research is being co-ordinated by the DanishInstitute for Human Rights and funded by the European Commission under the Fundamental Rights and Citizenshipprogramme. Dr Brian Taylor was appointed to the Editorial Board of the British Journal of Social Work. ProfessorDerek Birrell substantially completed work on his two books on public policy in Northern Ireland published byManchester University Press and the Policy Press respectively while Professor Colin Knox was similarly engaged inhis study in the outworking of devolution in Northern Ireland, also to be published by Manchester University Press.Goretti Horgan received a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship to examine the barriers faced by young people withdisabilities obtaining employment.The challenges facing this group in the future lie in the imminent retirement of some of the preeminent contributorsto the discipline within SPRI. Replacing experienced colleagues will be challenge. Fortunately, a significant groupof early career researchers specializing in criminology and policing research is emerging and this is reflected byConvery, Moore, McAlister and Topping achieving ‘development’ status in SPRI. The prospects for a significant groupof researchers in this area of research within the broader social and public policy themes of the group is a verypositive feature as we look towards the REF in 2012.Canadian StudiesCanadian Studies Programme has flourished within the Social and Policy Research Institute leading its internationalactivities. Feedback from the 2008 RAE acknowledged the significance of the Canadian focus in the institute’sresearch. Our work with Canada has been supported by the Government of Canada’s Program Development Grantand the Foundation of Canadian Studies in the UK’s project “Theorizing Multiculturalism and Social Cohesion inCanada and the UK: Lessons for Policy Implementation and Civic Engagement”. Four staff are engaged with thisproject• Dr Susan Hodgett (Director of Canadian Studies and President of the British Association for CanadianStudies) worked with Dr David Clark (LSE and Manchester) to develop a qualitative research methodologyin the area of multiculturalism, immigration and human development in Canada. Talks on this topic weredelivered at the Institute of Education, the University of London and at University College Dublin.• Professor Sile O’Connor as an outcome of a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council ofCanada funded project has published in Gender and the Contours of Precarious Employment (2009) by Leah F.Vosko (York University, Canada) et. al., Oxford: Routledge.• Dr Nick Acheson has worked on an exploration of the role of the Voluntary Sector in Ireland and Canadawith colleagues from Carleton University. He has presented his work ‘Compacts and the third sector’s rolein the multi-culturalism debate” at the National Council of Voluntary Organizations and the Voluntary SectorStudies Network and to the Carnegie UK Inquiry into the Future of Civil Society.52388- SOCIAL POLICY REP-02-10.indd 5 18/2/10 12:31:08


• Professor Arthur Aughey supported by a Leverhulme Fellowship continues investigating UK policyon Multiculturalism and influences from the Canadian experience. He has several outstanding publicationsforthcoming in major journals.Other SPRI members have continued their work on Canada.• Professor Bob Osborne (& Professor Carol Agocs University of Western Ontario) have published papersand spoken on Employment Equity and Equality in comparative context in Canada and NI.• Dr Roger Austin (Education) has worked with Prof. Bill Hunter (University of Ontario) on the role ofICT in church based education. Their soon to be published work was presented at Memorial UniversityNewfoundland in May. Prof. Hunter addressed our School of Education on ‘The ending of denominationalschooling in Newfoundland; possible lessons for Northern Ireland’ in June.Further Canadian Studies seminars were held with Prof. Dennis Pilon, (University of Victoria) on Electoral Reform inCanada; and by Professor Guy La Forest, (Laval University) on “Asymmetrical Federalism in Canada”.The Canadian Studies Research Programme encompasses a mixture of activities including outreach to otherconstituencies. Our 2009 conference Accommodating Difference: Multiculturalism and Identity in Comparative Contextwas co-sponsored by the Northern Ireland Community Relations Council, the Government of Quebec and theGovernment of Canada. Keynote speaker Sociologist, Professor Gerard Bouchard, Université du Québec spoke onManaging Ethnic Diversity in Québec: the so-called “Accommodation Crisis” and the Bouchard Taylor Report. Theconference, attended by fifty community based representatives and academics heard from Alan Trench (Universityof Edinburgh) on “Arrangements for Securing Institutional Diversity” in Quebec. Professor Vera Regan (UniversityCollege Dublin) spoke too about second language acquisition in Ireland and Canada. Related issues were discussedat a seminar by Dr. Leslie Seidle from the Institute for Research in Public Policy Montreal on “Policy instruments forImmigrant Integration: Trends and Emerging Issues for academics”.In March 2009, Canadian Studies welcomed Dr. Steve Hewitt (University of Birmingham) at a conference co-fundedby the UK Higher Education Academy, Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies. In the samemonth, Director of Canadian Studies, Dr. Susan Hodgett, chaired the national Canadian Studies conference at OxfordUniversity with speakers including Canadian Supreme Court Justice Madam Rosalie Abella, Professor Keith Banting(Queens University Kingston) and Directors from the ESRC and AHRC. She was elected as Secretary to theInternational Council for Canadian Studies in Ottawa.62388- SOCIAL POLICY REP-02-10.indd 6 18/2/10 12:31:08

5. EDUCATION RESEARCHUOA 45 received an aggregate score of 2.10 in the RAE; 75% of its research activity was at internationally recognisedgrade, with no unclassified activity and 10% rated internationally excellent. This is a gratifying result, but with upcomingretirements, there is no reason to be complacent, and the UOA will have to be built up again from a new low baseline. The current UOA coordinator, Rosalind Pritchard, is one of those who is about to retire, so the post will be innew hands from 2009 onwards.In 2009, Education had the pleasure of organising the SPRI Annual Lecture, “University Governance and the Role ofthe State: European Higher Education in Transition”; it was given by Michael Shattock who is a Visiting Professor at theInstitute of Education, University of London. He is known for high profile inquiries into governance and managementissues in higher education, and chaired the OECD Review of Irish Higher Education in 2003. The SPRI warmlyappreciated his authoritative and stimulating speech.Alan Smith, Director of the UNESCO Centre, held a grant of £1,358,114 from Atlantic Philanthropies to researchinto Education for Pluralism, Human Rights and Democracy. There was a launch of the report on The Legacies ofConflict: Children, Young People and Reconciliation (Smith, Wilson, Magill) funded by the EU Peace and ReconciliationFund, and the European Values Study (Smith, Lewis, Montgomery) continued its work for which Smith is countrydirector. He continued to lead and publish on problems of reconciliation, citizenship and International Development.He is on editorial boards of several journals or research centre’s, and is a member of the Irish Research Council forthe Humanities and Social Sciences.Work on Inclusion was salient. Lesley Abbott and Linda Clarke worked on the relationship between teacher education,induction and inclusion in Northern Ireland, whilst Una O’Connor explored diversity in an Irish context, and studiedthe relationship between Special Needs and citizenship. Tracy Irwin pursued her innovative work on prison education,publishing on learning in a custodial context and winning a grant on Induction for Prison Teachers. Jackie Lambeinvestigated the way in which trainee students’ a priori beliefs about Special Education confront reality. GerardMcAleavy was a key speaker at the LLUKNI launch of new standards at which it was announced that the Universityof Ulster would be the provider for the new work-based learning programme. He also headed a SCOTENS projectaimed at improving the skills of mentors North and South. He became a project director in a Three-Phase TeacherEducation project to widen participation and en-skill those involved in teaching activities.The global dimension received attention. Jackie Reilly continued her evaluation of its impact upon the curriculum.Alan McCully worked on the role of History and citizenship in NI, and attended conferences in Canada, Turkey andKilkenny at which he presented on the role of history in confronting sensitive issues. A number of publications wereundertaken on ICT. Roger Austin was awarded another instalment of money for his Dissolving Boundaries projectwhich builds bridges between children in the North and South of Ireland, and did a keynote speech upon “TheKnowledge Society” for SCOTENS. Victor McNair’s e-portfolio work led the field in NI, and received additionalfunding. Derick Wilson organised a high profile International Development Conference bringing major funderstogether with delegates from Africa. Clarke and others, including the Dean, visited Mozambique in connection withthe Irish-African Partnership for Research Capacity. Rosalind Pritchard also contributed to the African theme byvisiting Malawi in connection with a Garfield Weston teaching project of which Clarke is the budget holder. During thisvisit, she was invited to join the Editorial Board of the Malawi Journal of Education and Development. She contributedto a book on the Genesis and Growth of the University of Ulster by authoring a chapter on the Merger that led toits foundation (with Roebuck). She completed her work as Chair of the British Association for International andComparative Education, and her period on the Executive of the European Association for Institutional Research. Shesubmitted her final report to the Leverhulme Trust on her gender project in Higher Education.242388- SOCIAL POLICY REP-02-10.indd 24 18/2/10 12:31:08
