SSHRC-funded research on equity, diversity and inclusion

SSHRC has made significant contributions to understanding and addressing issues of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in Canada through research it funds that specifically addresses EDI issues. This includes research in history, sociology, anthropology, political science, social work, education, law, philosophy, literature—essentially, the full range of social sciences and humanities disciplines—as well as research that is multidisciplinary.
