About SJRC

Our goal is to create an international community of practice dedicated to developing innovative solutions for social intervention and policy.


SJRC faculty and advisors are experienced academics and practitioners in international development, combatting modern slavery, and the institution of family care systems.



We are located in Falkirk, Scotland. Our office, trainings, and student accommodation are at St. James Church, built in 1898, and just a short walk from Falkirk’s downtown and restaurants, shopping, gyms, and a movie theatre.
