We have a vibrant, active research community which has a long tradition of generating impactful world class research.

Our research activities have impacted nationally and internationally through a diverse range of projects ranging from slavery and trafficking, to the Hillsborough disaster, child sexual abuse, dealing with the past, and the role of judges in post-conflict settings.
