Transdisciplinary Research: emergence of new perspectives, insights and tools by working across academic disciplines and involving non-academic participants as equal partners.
Global Health in the 21st century is characterized by complexity, connectedness, turbulence, and adaptability. It is a constellation of economic, environmental, political, social, technological and demographic phenomena. The Dahdaleh Institute focuses these huge concerns through three research themes and with a clear priority: the ethical application of transdisciplinary research.
Global Health & Humanitarianism
Humanitarianism is not charity. It is fuelled by the understanding that we are all implicated in the political, economic and environmental decisions that put vulnerable people into crisis.
Planetary Health research calls urgent attention to the human health cost of breaking ecological limits and invites deeper reflection on the relationship between human and environmental wellbeing.
Global Health Foresighting
The Dahdaleh Institute gives license to imaginative and intentional approaches to designing global health futures.
