As we conduct research and social, cultural and development activities in the aforementioned countries, the Institute of Infrastructural Development (IID) is committed to examining and reviewing the systems, structures, cultures, experiences and consequences of inequities within education and higher education settings. We are part of critically informed social change, bringing together new interdisciplinary understandings of the creation, exchange and transfer of knowledge, and its social justice purpose, distribution and impact on society, higher education policy, practices and processes. As an independent institution, we are specialist in applying qualitative and quantitative research methodologies that allow us to address social, educational and cultural gaps in the international and fast-growing context of Slovakia and other countries aiming to facilitate and promote individual and social integration.
Slovakia has opened its doors to attract international businesses and provide opportunities for outstanding companies, organisations and institutions as well as the newly emerging initiatives and start up businesses. It has been also investing on attracting international students to develop knowledge production and enhance not only its social and cultural diversity but also economic status in the globe. It is therefore necessary to identify and address the social and cultural gaps that are emerging as a result of these dynamic changes. Our aim is to identify and address issues that interrupt integration of various individuals and social groups and lead to their self-isolation and resistance while making them to refrain from participation in activities that contribute to the social, cultural, and economical development of their country. IID identifies these social groups, communities and individuals, and plans, offers, initiates and implements various infrastructure support services and programmes such as providing training, structural development support initiatives, conducts research, and organises educational, social and cultural events to not only bridge the socioeconomic and sociocultural gaps but also promote and increase social integration of newcomers.
We aspire to bring intellectual work, high‐impact research findings and new insights to diverse audiences. Being the first of its kind in the Slovak Republic, we aim to connect and strengthen social and cultural links between Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe and Asia. We work with students, policymakers, national and international organisations, NGOs, and campaigners, as well as well-known social scientists and scholars globally building a shared vision of imagining alternative futures.
Our previous and current research has been considering equity in higher education in relation to the interrelated themes of a) internationalisation and mobility, b) leadership (gender, exclusion), and c) inclusion with a focus on social integration and educational participation. Through its links with national and international research centres, IID seeks to promote research collaboration, seminars, consultancy and academic partnerships. We aim to maintain and expand our position at the heart of innovative and by conducting cutting-edge research in the area of education and higher education, social mobility, migration, cultural exchange and socio-cultural integration through a) conducting high-quality national and international research, b) developing theory and informing practice on equity, c) producing quality publications, d) offering expertise and consultancy at national and international levels, e) contributing to policy debates, f) promoting networks and academic links, and g) building the research capacity of early career researchers and postgraduate students.
