Research in this area is active and extensive, and is focused both within the Department of Social Policy & Criminology and the Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance and the International Centre for Comparative Criminological Research. Research students connected to this area are generally eligible to become student members of the appropriate centre and are well supported by colleagues in the department e.g. through presenting at departmental seminars. This is an interdisciplinary theme that focuses on how social relations, divisions and inequalities are constructed, manifested and contested through globalisation and transnationalisation processes. The Department of Social Policy & Criminology’s work in this theme includes globalisation(s) ‘from above’ and ‘from below’, including the development of global social regulation, governance and policy formation in relation to topics such as migration, financial transfers (remittances), social protection, health and social care, youth justice, and access to food, air and water. We also address transnational political activism as it relates to policy formation in a range of global and sub-global contexts, and their significance for understanding processes of social development and change.
