New Year – New Logo


The academic year is starting in a few days and the International Community Project is ready to start again. But before meetings and research, we thought it was time to give a graphic idea of our aims, so… We developed a logo!


It is quite simple, but goes straight to the point: there are four hands, each one represents a geographic area of interest and some of the flags of the countries we focus on colour them, with the Union Jack as well.

We hope you like it as much as we do!

About csdinternationalcommunityproject

The International Community Project was launched by the Centre for Study of Democracy of University of Westminster to undertake empirical research into different communities, Turkish, Somalian, Kurdish, Sudanese, Iranian, Egyptian, Iraqi, Latin American’s and... in London. In fact, London is a melting pot of different ethnic groups and thus an important research field for students of Politics, International Relations and Development Studies. Indeed, in the last 30 years the impact of globalisation, especially since 9/11, has meant the further integration of economics and politics, something which has generated a variety of contradictions in the world, particularly here in London. Communities in London have not been immune from this process as a range of ideas and issues including religion, nationalism, democracy, security and IR, inclusion/exclusion, gender, migration and remittance and development, have taken centre stage. This project is about looking at these issues by taking a practical approach; it will involve the students, with the Department’s guidance and support, conducting research related to Politics, IR, and Development, with the aim of unravelling the underlining reasons behind these changes and hopefully, putting forward some solutions. Students will be involved in going out into the community of choice to engage in research, in conducting an interview within that community, with a range of a wide range of people... Finally, the research can be integrated to research and interviews into students' coursework and especially, in the final year dissertation.
