Partnerships

NEST builds on the work of a number of the Centres, Groups, and Programs currently in existence within the Faculty of Social Science.

The six Western Research Centres in the Faculty of Social Science govern NEST:

  • Centre for Computational and Quantitative Social Science
  • Centre for Human Capital and Productivity
  • Centre for Research on Migration and Ethnic Relations
  • Centre for Research on Social Inequality
  • Centre for Transitional Justice and Post-Conflict Reconstruction
  • Centre for Urban Affairs and Local Governance
NEST is also affiliated with other research centres and institutes. While these centres and institutes do not fall under the umbrella of NEST, their mission, goals, and research focus can support and expand the work of the members of NEST.

  • Centre for Research on Health Equity and Social Inclusion
  • Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction
  • Statistics Canada Research Data Centre at Western
  • Trillium Network for Advanced Manufacturing
