Welcome to the KBase MISEAL data base!
The database KBase MISEAL is part of the MISEAL project and aims at the publicizing of projects and initiatives in the area of social inclusion and equity, especially within the realm of higher education, that are carried out in Latin America and Europe.
At KBase MISEAL you can search for and register information about projects or initiatives that improve the access conditions of underrepresented and socially vulnerable groups to higher eduaction and increase their social inclusion and equity within higher education institutions. These groups are identified by the following (intersectional) indicators of difference: age, ability, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, sex and/or class.
KBase MISEAL includes projects and initiatives that aim to promote social inclusion and equity for three target groups (students, academic staff, administrative staff) at higher education institutions (HEI) in Latin America and Europe. The database considers inequality of access to HEI in relation to the following six (intersectional) indicators of difference: age, ability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, sex and/or class.
There are two options to search for information about the projects/initiatives registered in our database:
- If you are searching for information about the process of implementacion, conceptualization or innovation of the projects/initiatives then click on Trajectory;
- If you are searching for information about target groups or indicators of difference then click on Target Groups.
KBase MISEAL is a pilot project that aims at making good practices of social inclusion and equality visible at a transnational level. The project is supported by the European Union.
This database allows for your work to circulate and for you to get in contact with higher education institutions in Latin America and Europe and the people working there, as well as with civil society actors. It also allows you to exchange experiences and create synergies.
KBase MISEAL displays registered projects by retracing their trajectories so that users may comprehend how the projects were conceptualized, developped and implemented, thereby making them more transparent and replicable. It is therefore very important to pay attention to all the information that appears in the fields Project's Approach, Implementation and Evaluation, and Innovation and Replicability (under the Trajectory section of your search results), because it is by displaying this content that an initiative is able to show its condition as "best practice".
However, by creating this database the MISEAL project is not certifying registered projects as best practices. Nor can MISEAL be held responsible for any information displayed through the registry of each project.
