What we do

We conduct theoretical and applied research aimed at understanding and supporting personhood and citizenship in dementia. Our work is situated in three intersecting domains: lived experiences, interactional environments, and socio-cultural contexts. The diagram below represents this guiding framework.

The CRPD provides an interdisciplinary home for students, post-doctoral researchers, and visiting scholars who are conducting research on topics related to personhood and citizenship in dementia. We are a vibrant scholarly community with connections across BC, Canada, and internationally.

We also work with an active network of community partners to help translate and mobilize new knowledge into real life settings.
