Citizenship, migration and human rights
Our research focuses on issues relating to the socio-legal framework which influences human rights, citizenship and migration, examined from sociological, political, education and socio-legal perspectives.
Diversity and personal life
Our focus on social justice intersects with the key demographics of gender, ethnicity, and sexuality. Drawing on a range of qualitative methodologies, work in this area explores everyday personal experiences within broader social structures and cultural trends.
Social and political crime and violence
We explore socio-legal, cultural and ethical approaches to violence from the local to global levels, notably focusing on the impact of violence on under-represented groups.
Health policies, illness and well-being
Our research also draws together social, cultural and biological perspectives on physical health and mental well-being.
