Tareq Hardan


I study Communities – Academic Partnerships (CAPs) in Social work & Welfare practice in transnational contexts. CAPs are shaped through environmental, institutional, communal, and personal factors that influence communities’ well-being and Higher Education Institutions` (HEIs) purpose. While most Social work & Welfare research on CAPs is dispersed. I decidedly take an ecological lens to study the collective outcomes of McGill School of Social Work ICAN Fellowship on Fellows, HEIs, and their communities in the Middle East, then construct its meaning in each context to synthesize the innovative features of CAPs. It is embedded within my work a quintessential dedication to social work`s knowledge integration, mobilization, and translation. To do this, I intend to mix methods, using ethnographic and participatory research to understand mechanisms on the ground, and then utilize econometric tools and large-scale administrative data-sets to analyze and track CAPs effects.
