Queen’s Social Charter Podcast – Episode 4: Knitstanbul and Social Enterprise

Queen’s University’s Social Charter, launched in November 2017, shines a light on the significant contribution made by our students and staff and the positive impact we have on our society.

‘The Charter’, our podcast series, features interviews with some of those students and staff, and digs into some of the projects making a great contribution to our communities here at home and farther afield.

In this episode we hear from Dr Fiona Murphy and Dr Evi Chatzipanagiotidou, from the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics, about their anthropological research, and not least about their work with a social enterprise project involving Syrian refugees in Turkey – Knitstanbul!

Then we will hear from Professor Brendan Murtagh from the School of Natural and Built Environment, who outlines his research into these issues, and looks in particular at social enterprises in Belfast.
