Aerial shot of people on a crossroads

This is the inaugural annual workshop of the Centre for Policy, Citizenship and Society (CPCS) and will bring together postgraduate researchers, early career researchers and established scholars to network, share their current research, and learn more about the ways the CPCS can support their work going forward.

Event details

Overview of the centre: The CPCS conducts research that seeks to understand the ways in which society operates, especially in relation to policy, theory and practice in social contexts. These issues are explored through sociological, socio-political, cultural, economic and organisational lenses, and are underpinned by theoretical and applied research that seeks to understand and inform social and public policy.

Research in the Centre spans a range of themes, including exploring issues of identity (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity, age, social class) and identity construction, youth research, citizenship, security, the workplace, social exclusion as well as research examining the interplay between policy and the changing nature of societies. Much of this work takes a critical lens, with researchers in the centre also actively researching decoloniality.

This event is sponsored by the Centre for Policy, Citizenship and Society and is open to members of the centre as well as postgraduate researchers and members of staff at NTU with an interest in joining the centre. Please direct any queries to the CPCS Director, Dr Imad El-Anis (
