Who We Are And What We Do

The International Belonging Research Laboratory (IBRL) was founded in 2018 to create a  research group of academics from around the world to collaborate, network and share their research in the area of belonging. 

We are a transdisciplinary international team of members interested in belonging research. 

The IBRL oversees a small private group on facebook for belonging researchers and academics. All researchers interested in the science of belonging are welcome to join. In addition to this, we manage a Twitter and Instagram account.


If you would like to share your research or publications, network with like-minded researchers, or even collaborate on a project, please consider joining our facebook group. 

 

Alternatively, follow us on instagram and twitter.
