A Critical Analysis of the use of dissalowance and sanctions in the UK unemployment benefit system since 1911
The UK system of benefit sanctions for unemployed people has recently become increasingly controversial because of its evident role in creating destitution, as evidenced most vividly in the increased use of food banks. Yet there are virtually no existing academic studies of this system. This project aims to fill this gap.

Urban Transformations in China: Urban Development , Migration, Segregation and Inequality
This International Centre Partnership brings together researchers from three leading urban research organisations: the Urban Big Data Centre at University of Glasgow, the Applied Quantitative Methods Network (AQMeN) at University of Sheffield, and the CASS Institute of Urban and Environmental Studies in Beijing. It will allow collaborative and comparative research on three important and interrelated urban development issues of migration, segregation and inequality, and make significant contributions in research findings, new methods, theoretical development and policy impact.

Welfare Conditionality: Sanctions, Support and Behaviour Change
We’re studying conditional welfare in the UK. By that we mean two main situations. One is where people’s access to welfare is restricted or stopped – for example, by benefit sanctions or rules. The second, equally important, is welfare support – for example, through family intervention projects or help to find work. Generally with these kinds of sanctions and support, governments aim to get people to change their behaviour. We’re looking into all the effects of sanctions and support on people’s lives.
