We are recruiting for a Research Associate with an interest in policing and justice (deadline midnight 24 November). Fixed term to August 2022.


Our new briefing with Runnymede Trust explores why Covid 19 is having such a devastating effect on our older ethnic minority population:

  • These groups are more exposed to the virus, and to longstanding inequalities in housing, health, employment and resources, all exacerbated by the pandemic.
  • The loss of social spaces, lack of digital access for some, coupled with language barriers for others, has made maintaining social connections and accessing resources and information harder.
  • 'Vaccine hesitancy' is much more complex than painted in the media.
The briefing is authored by Jenny Hewitt and Dharmi Kapadia. It is the latest in our Covid briefings series.

Join the briefing's authors, and our expert panel, to discuss issues raised by the research:

In their new book, Remi Joseph-Salisbury and Laura Connelly question the role of universities and the academics that work within them. They consider how anti-racist scholar-activists navigate barriers and backlash in order to leverage the opportunities and resources of the university in service to communities of resistance. 

Anti-Racist Scholar-Activism is part of the Manchester University Press Islamophobia Awareness Month reading list. All books on the list are 50% off during November using code IAM50.
