Projects per year
Social Sciences research at Northumbria is concerned with analysing and explaining how the lives of individuals, societies and nations are being transformed by multi-level processes of change, from the global to the local.
Researchers draw upon insights from a range of disciplines including Criminology, International Development, International Relations, Politics and Sociology, with the distinctiveness of this interdisciplinary approach also reflected in the impact of our work on research users across public, private and voluntary sectors, including the most marginalised groups in society.
Research in Social Sciences is supported by two specialist research centres, the Centre for International Development and the Centre for Crime and Policing and three research clusters – Insecurity, Violence and Harm, Power, Culture and Identities and International Relations. Staff in Social Sciences also actively contribute to two University multi-disciplinary research themes (MDRTs) – Global Development Futures and Integrated Health and Social Care – and a cross-university research network, the Gender, Violence and Abuse Research Network.
