Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research

Making sense of the social world


 

About

I am Research Professor of Social Policy at the University of Kent’s School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research.

I chaired the British Academy New Paradigms in Public Policy Programme (2010/2011) and am Chair of the REF Social Work and Social Policy and Administration panel 2011-15, a Fellow of the British Academy, a Founding Academician at the Academy of Social Sciences and, previously, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and President of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, Sociology and Social Policy Section.

I participated in the Prime Minister’s No 10 ‘progressive consensus’ Round Table and advised the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit between 2009 and 2010.

Career
I joined the University of Kent in 1979 as a Lecturer in Social Policy. I became Professor of Social Policy in 1990. I started my lecturing career at the University of Manchester as a Lecturer in Social Administration.

I’ve written 23 books, 120 articles and 95 chapters, and given more than 100 keynote presentations at international conferences.

Major grants

Major grants include:

  • Our Children’s’ Europe, 2015-18, a NORFACE project led from Kent, 1.5m Euro. The project links together teams in Denmark, Germany, Norway, Slovenia and the UK, carrying out innovative research into people’s attitudes to the welfare state and how it will develop, using Democratic Forums and Focus Groups.
  • INSPIRES (Resilience, unemployment and young people), an EU FPV project, led from Erasmus, Rotterdam, Euro 220,000. Inspires conducts co-ordinated research in 12 countries on policy responses to unemployment among vulnerable groups and compares the success of different initiatives.
  • Social Contexts and Responses to Risk, an ESRC Priority Network, 2003-2008, £2.8m. The Network links together research projects in 12 universities which examine how people perceive and respond to risks. The research is multi-disciplinary and the team includes sociologists, economists, psychologists and experts in social policy, socio-legal studies and media.
  • Welfare Reform and the Management of Societal Change, an EU FPV project, 2001-5, 1.1m euros. This project, directed from Kent, examines how European social policy responds to the challenges of population ageing, labour market change and ideological shifts against the welfare state.
  • Economic Beliefs and Behaviour, an ESRC Research Programme, 1994-9, £1.5m. EBB is a multi-disciplinary research programme involving economists, psychologists, sociologists, social policy experts and other social scientists. The research investigated the relationship between people’s understanding of economic and material issues and their behaviour. It was conducted in 17 university departments and research institutes in the U.K. and in collaboration with visiting experts from Europe and America.

Plus 42 smaller grants to a total value of £6.2m, £4.5m from ESRC.

Research Interests

Research interests
My main interests are in current developments in the welfare state: the cuts and welfare state restructuring, the social divisions association with inequality and the struggles over multiculturalism. I have further interests in cross-disciplinary work on risk, comparative cross-national work on European social policy and work on theoretical developments in social policy. I believe that careful, theoretically-founded qualitative and quantitative empirical research is essential to make progress in all these areas. I am greatly concerned about the damage the current austerity programme does to the welfare state.

Supervision
I welcome research students in social policy with special interests in current developments in the welfare state: the cuts and welfare state restructuring, the social divisions associated with inequality and the struggles over multiculturalism. I have further interests in cross-cutting interdisciplinary work on risk and in comparative and European social policy. If you have a proposal in these areas and want to study at the University of Kent, please email me to discuss further.

Teaching

Current
My teaching is mainly supervision of research students (see my research tab). Two of my ex-research students hold chairs at Russell Group universities and one at a leading European university. The thesis titles of recent successful students give an idea of the range of areas of interest:

  • The Pressures for and Limits to Pension Reform in Greece and Turkey
  • Social Security, Social Control and the Tribunal Process
  • The Ideology of Entitlement - Public Opinion, Social Division and Social Security
  • Women in the Labour Market and the Family: Policies in Greece and Germany
  • The Politics of Pension and Health Care Reform in Korea, 1975-2002.
