Covid-19 Research

Close up view of a virus

Researchers in the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work are supporting efforts to understand the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on society.

The Covid-19 pandemic has generated enormous consequences for our society. It has exposed and deepened numerous societal inequalities and its effects are felt more strongly by some groups than others. It is essential that we understand the impact of Covid-19 on our world so that we can begin to create policies that support social justice and equality. It is also important that we shine a light on how we have often come together as communities to support and help each other in this time of crisis.

Researchers from the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work are leading and supporting a number of projects to investigate a wide range of issues related to Covid-19 and our society. These projects have a strong focus on the impact of the crisis on many marginalized groups, including people with disabilities, prisoners, migrants, and children. A number of projects also examine how individuals and groups provide care and experience life under lockdown.
