About the Centre

Helen Beckett

Director: Dr Helen Beckett

The International Centre is committed to increasing understanding of, and improving responses to, child sexual exploitation, violence and trafficking in local, national and international contexts.

Achieved through:

  • academic rigour and research excellence
  • collaborative and partnership based approaches to applied social research
  • meaningful and ethical engagement of children and young people
  • active dissemination and evidence-based engagement in theory, policy and practice

Staff at the International Centre work collaboratively in teams with internal and external staff on applied research, evaluation, consultancy and training.

We prioritise a focus on children and young people's participation, taking this seriously in all aspects of our work.
