 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Marie Parker-Jenkins is Professor of Education in the Department of Education and Professional
Studies, University of Limerick, researching issues of social justice with particular reference to “race”
and ethnicity. Before having an academic career in the UK, she taught in Bermuda, Canada and
Australia where she obtained practical knowledge of children from culturally diverse backgrounds. She is
the author of over 100 publications including books, reports and journal articles. Her research has
included study of the expansion of religious schools, particularly those based on an Islamic and Jewish

She has taught in five universities before coming to Limerick, and her current research is concerned
with responding to diversity within the Irish context, and childrens rights.
