It is with great pleasure that we publish Gateways' ninth volume, which features engaged research from Canada, Australia, the United States, South Africa, Uganda and Japan. A noteworthy element of a number of these articles is the degree of critical reflection on the strengths and challenges experienced by university-community collaborations. These constructive discussions explore both practical and theoretical implications, not just for established academics but emerging scholars, and those based abroad, who juggle multiple 'homes'. A number of other articles examine the benefits of using arts- and culture-based methodologies when engaging with youth, particularly when dealing with complex issues such as mental health and wellbeing.

We hope you enjoy the volume. Feedback is welcome: please email
