Research Projects

Our research projects examine and investigate the social concerns and challenges that affect us all in our everyday lives.  Our findings challenge and influence government and institutional policies, legislation and practice. 

At any one time, we are likely to have around 40 ‘live’ research projects.

Many of our projects attract large research grants from funding bodies such as the Economic and Social Research Council, the European Commission, the European Research Council, the National Institute for Health Research, the Wellcome Trust, the Department of Health, the Leverhulme Trust, the British Academy, the Global Challenges Research Fund, the Department for International Development and the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
