Research: Sense of Belonging Among Doctoral Researchers


1Black is used politically and conceptually as a term of empowerment and is inclusive of staff and students from all racialised minority backgrounds (African, Caribbean, Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Chinese, dual heritage etc.). While it is accepted that these groups are heterogeneous, we are united as a strategy to foster unity and collaboration.
