Research Assistant, Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship, University of Bristol


I work with Tariq Modood and Nasar Meer on the British contribution to ACCEPT.  I am also in the final stages of my doctoral researc h, which deals with how ‘social cohesion’ has become a central component of recent social policy language. My research project examines the adoption of policy agendas in Germany (Bürgergesellschaft), France (cohésion sociale) and the United Kingdom (community cohesion) and, in particular, how new social problems have been identified against the background of changing conceptualizations of social relations.
