Our research is having an impact across the UK and
around the world. Our projects range from investigating crime
issues surrounding the Olympics through to supporting the United
Nations to uphold human rights in war-torn countries.
Academics in our four faculties are contributing to important
public debates including discussions on childhood obesity, poverty
and inequality, access to justice and the economic crisis. At the
same time we are providing new insights into a huge range of issues
stretching from the literature of the Caribbean through to the
future of the Internet.
Our Research Discoveries series features a total of 29 of our academic colleagues, who go
front-of-camera to explain what drives their specific research interests and their desire to teach. Collectively,
they showcase the breadth of expertise we offer.
