Report Description
Conflict in Cameroon Report Cover x190.jpg

This report presents the findings of a pilot study on the ‘Shrinking Civic Space and the Role of Civil Society in Resolution of Conflict in Anglophone Cameroon’, which is a much-neglected conflict. It captures the voices and experiences of local CSOs in their efforts towards conflict resolution in a challenging environment.

Nine Years of Bloodshed.png

Violence and crime in the Arab Palestinian society in Israel has increased considerably in recent years. In partnership with Baladna (Association for Arab Youth), Marwan Darweish has launched a report about gun crime violence; Nine Years of Bloodshed, which aims to shed light on the scope and nature of homicides through the collection of data on victims. The report is part of larger research aims to gain a greater understanding of the nature of the violence and explore the causes that have contributed to its increase. This work will also look at violence and community responses in Black, Asian, and ethnic minority groups in the United Kingdom and among Indigenous peoples in New Zealand.

Beyond Build Back Better.png Beyond 'Build Back Better' Funded by the Disasters Emergency Committee, this research conducted by Gordon Crawford and Chas Morrison has coalesced around an ambitious model for post-disaster recovery: the community-led reconstruction programme (CLRP), implemented by ActionAid Nepal and its partners following the earthquakes in Nepal.
Chaplains on Campus.png ‘Chaplains on Campus: Understanding Chaplaincy in UK Universities’ examines the work that chaplains do, how that is resourced and the impact that their work has on campus life. Funded by the Church of England via its Church Universities Fund, this is a major piece of work involving over 400 university chaplains, managers and religion or belief organisations across the UK, and nearly 200 students.
Internal Braker in Violent Extremism.jpg 'The Internal Brakes on Violent Escalation' Why do some ‘extremists’ or ‘extremist groups’ choose not to engage in violence, or only in particular forms of low-level violence? Why is it that even in deeply violent groups there are often thresholds of violence that members rarely if ever cross, even if they apparently have the capability to do so? This project helps academic researchers and security, law enforcement and intelligence analysts develop a better understanding of decision-making within extremist or terrorist groups/movements by enabling analysis of a largely neglected dimension of their decision-making: the mechanisms through which group members themselves seek to inhibit or set parameters around the adoption of new or more extreme forms of violence – what we refer to as the ‘internal brakes’ on violent escalation.
MEDMIG.png Our final report of the ESRC-funded Mediterranean Migration (MEDMIG) project shines new light on the dynamics of migration to Europe across the Mediterranean Sea drawing on a rich dataset from the first large-scale, systematic and comparative study of the backgrounds, experiences, routes and aspirations of refugees and migrants in three EU Member States – Italy, Greece and Malta – and Turkey.
The prevent duty.png The report ‘What the Prevent duty means for schools and colleges in England: An analysis of educationalists’ experiences’, published 2 years after the introduction of the Prevent duty, seeks to get beyond the polarised public debate about the duty to explore, in a systematic and evidenced way, the experiences of ‘front line’ education professionals in schools and colleges (teaching staff, school/college leaders, support staff and technical staff).
The REPLACE Approach.png The REPLACE Approach is an innovative and effective approach to ending FGM in the EU. Funded by the EU over a period of five years, the REPLACE Approach has been developed, trialled, improved, implemented and evaluated with African FGM affected communities living in the EU including those from: Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Senegal, Somalia and Sudan. The REPLACE Approach is presented in this Toolkit, with the accompanying REPLACE Community Handbook giving practical guidance on how to implement the REPLACE Approach.
Victims and Villains.jpg The 'Victims & Villians' report explores how migrant voices and experiences are framed in Britain’s migration debate, against the backdrop of a complex relationship between the media, political debate and public attitudes. Were the voices and experiences of migrants present in media reporting on migration issues in the months leading up to the 2015 General Election? And if migrants were able to have a voice, how were their experiences and perspectives represented and framed?
