Under Professor Leila Choukroune's directorship, the Democratic Citizenship theme deals with issues of equality, citizenship and engagement.
Many of the University's research areas deal directly with issues of Democratic Citizenship, including:
We're working with organisations, governments and individuals to deal with some of the world's most pressing issues – from reducing the impact of war, to fighting political exclusion.
Our research is searching for new ways to tackle global issues – such as poverty, inequality, and human rights abuse – and in doing so, make the world a better place.
We're exploring how laws and the legal system shape society and how the legal system affects the daily lives of people within it.
We're exploring gender and women’s issues in social and cultural contexts – from suffrage and the 1st and 2nd waves of feminism, to the intersections between gender and religion and education.
Our research explores how governments can regulate natural resource use efficiently, develop effective monetary policies, and legislate to influence people’s economic decisions.
