6 Year School Research Report

Six years after the formation of the new School of Social Policy, Social Work and Social Justice we are taking stock both in terms of what we have achieved and to plan our research over the next phase of development. To highlight our success and to illustrate the growing impact of our research, we are publishing this research highlights report. The report is structured in terms of the School's eight research themes. Within each theme we feature a selection of research projects with a view to providing a pen picture of the research undertaken by faculty as well as our postdoctoral researchers and research assistants. We include recent books published by faculty and end the report with a section on 'Featured Researchers' which provides an insight into the research of a selection of Faculty, Postdoctoral researchers and PhD students.
