The Institute of Applied Social Research (IASR) brings together research within the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, producing work which both anticipates and shapes key changes in policy, administration and practice. In the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) 78% or our research was assessed to be world-leading or internationally excellent.
The Institute is home to three research centres – The Tilda Goldberg Centre for Social Work and Social Care (TGC), the International Centre: Researching child sexual exploitation and trafficking (IC) and the Vauxhall Centre for the Study of Crime (VC) – and three interdisciplinary research groups which focus on forced migration, substance misuse and ageing and building resilience and wellbeing in the helping professions.
