Our Work

The Third Generation Project’s work is primarily focused in Scotland and East Africa, including Rwanda, Somaliland, Kenya and Ethiopia. 

Breaking the 4th Wall of Climate Migration

Breaking the 4th Wall of Climate Migration is a multifaceted education initiative, which bridges our work abroad and at home. The initial project involved working with our Somalilander and Anuak partners to shed light on the human impacts of climate change and to bring these stories about climate justice into Scottish schools.

Today, we are looking for new ways to integrate climate justice into Scotland’s educational curriculum.

In responding to the changing circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic, the project has now become a joint initiative between SOM-ACT, Transparency Solutions, and TGP to document and analyze the effectiveness of governmental and non-governmental humanitarian programming geared towards displaced Somalilanders in Digaale camp.

Climate of Violence

We are working with the Human Rights Clinic (HRC) at the University of Miami Law School and AIMPO to document the intersections of gender-based violence, climate change and Indigenous lives through a participatory and community-collaborative approach.

The Emerging Researchers Programme (ERP) is an intensive 1and a half year course designed to train aspiring researchers in critical, ethical and collaborative theory, methodology and practise. It is divided into 2 parts and is intended only for 3rd year undergraduates at the University of St Andrews.

The Emerging Researchers Programme


Through Whitewashed St Andrews we are investigating diversity and representation in the University of St Andrews’ curricula and engaging with staff and students to better understand what meaningful decolonisation of education looks like.

This involves conducting a comprehensive review of reading lists for IR courses, student-driven focus groups, and interviews with faculty and university administrators.

We seek to work with students to create meaningful dialogue and affect change within the realm of education, in a way which centres their voices and intentions. 

As a justice-oriented think tank we are particularly keen to collaborate with students whose initiatives focus on social and climate justice, and critical pedagogy.
