Research in the College of Business, Law and Social Sciences

Our researchers generate distinctive, impactful and relevant research

We generate, communicate and apply knowledge and insights for the direct benefit of our students, partners and community. Our approach is one of joint discovery in order to enhance practice locally, nationally and internationally, and to support effective policy-making and governance.

Our research has a purpose: relevant and insightful for our partners whilst inspirational and informative for our students, who often support us in undertaking research.
