The academic institutions with which we have worked provide evidence of how scholars are attracted to work with us, and enthused by our vision of enabling contributions not just in Modern Languages but through Modern Languages. More specifically, we are gaining increasing profile in championing equitable research partnerships with institutions in the developing world, informed by our ethos of transformational impact, ethical working, and of embedding EDI into our partnerships where possible, with funded projects (both from external research grants, and internal seed-corn funding) working with countries on the DAC list of ODA recipients including Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Cape Verde, Colombia, Ghana, India, Tunisia and Zambia
