Lyda Lannegrand and Cyrille Perchec from the Faculty of Psychology are involved in the Erasmus+ strategic partnership PROMIS (“Promoting social inclusion skills in a post-truth world:A gamified online platform and curriculum”). As part of this initiative, an international group of university scholars have published the e-book Building Inclusive Societies by Promoting Social Inclusion and Reducing Discrimination: Theories, Research, and Interventions.

The e-book presents theoretical models and scientific studies concerning the inclusion of marginalized groups, such as immigrants, ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities or low socio-economic status.

To provide students with in-depth understanding of the challenges that disadvantaged groups face, the e-book also offers case studies and evidence-based projects aiming to promote social inclusion.

The work is also aimed at educational teams and contains lesson content, learning outcomes and educational activities, all elements designed to be used in a variety of pedagogical scenarios.

The training created as part of this strategic partnership is currently being rolled out in several faculties in the Collège Sciences de l’Homme over this academic year.

The e-book is organised around six themes:

  • For a Just and Equal Society: Promoting Integration and Inclusion (Isabelle Dielwart, Belinda Hibbel, & Susan Branje, Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Department of Education and Pedagogy, Utrecht University, the Netherlands)
  • Social Inclusion of Adolescents with a Migrant Background (Savaş Karataş & Elisabetta Crocetti, Department of Psychology, Alma Mater Studiorum, University of Bologna, Italy)
