PhD Project

The aim of Lucy's research is to establish the role and impact of the Faith and Belief Forum's (F&BF)’s School Linking Programme and in so doing, gain original insight into the relationship between ‘interfaith encounters’ and ‘peaceful relations’ among young people in London’s schools.

The research consists of a mixed methods exploratory case study of F&BF's School Linking Programme, on the one hand quantitatively analysing F&BF's evaluation data, and on the other using qparticipant observation and focus groups to inductively uncover patterns of changing behaviour and language as a result of F&BF's work. By identifying the information that needs to be captured to accurately demonstrate the change attributed to F&BF, the findings will be used reflectively to construct a new framework for impact assessment and establish a set of tailored monitoring and evaluation tools for the programme. The research takes a unique approach, combining an investigation of religion and education with impact evaluation to provide an original account of the role and effectiveness of interfaith approaches as a tool for fostering peaceful relations among young people in London’s schools.
