Dr Nughmana Mirza
- Lecturer (Sociology)
Nughmana Mirza is a lecturer in Criminology at the University of Glasgow. She holds a PhD in Social Policy, MRes in Social Research, and an MSc in Islamic and Middle Eastern History all from the Univeristy of Edinburgh. Her doctoral research focused on South Asian women's experience of family abuse in Scotland, with a particular focus on micro- and macro-level contexts such as policy and practice. Her wider research interests are around kinship patterns, marriage migration, and the criminal justice response to marginalised populations, specifically South Asian women.
Nughmana has previously worked with the Scottish Government on experiences of forced marriage in Scotland, and with Nuffield and Stirling University on a UK-wide project exploring child welfare inequalities.
