My crime studies colleagues and I have been successful in gaining funding from AHRC and ESRC for our one-year research project on Representation of Human Trafficking! We won an Innovation Award from Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research. You can see the announcement plus a list of the other Innovation Award winners here.
The Principal Investigator of our project is Christiana Gregoriou of Leeds University, and she leads the international, interdisciplinary research team consisting of Melissa Deary of Hull University; Nina Muzdeka of University of Novi Sad; Ilse Ras from Leeds University; Bernie Gravett, Head of Specialist Policing, and myself.
Monday 3 October is the official Launch Day for our project, so look out for plenty of social media activity and further announcements. I will also be posting links here to our project Twitter, Facebook page, and blog.
