Thesis Title: The Role of Religion in Prisons in England and Wales

I am a PhD student in the School of Social Sciences. Having studied and worked in the criminal justice field, my research interests are centred on prisoner / offender wellbeing; specifically, the relationship between language, politics, faith and identity and their varying influences upon recidivism, rehabilitation and reintegration. I have worked closely with indigenous and minority populations overseas and now intend to diversify my research to incorporate minority cultures in the United Kingdom.

I work from a qualitative, postmodern paradigm, investing heavily in phenomenological inquiry and discourse analysis. I am currently studying the role of religion in prisons in England and Wales. I am intending to conduct a series of one-to-one interviews with service providers from within HM Prison Service and additional community-based groups in order to develop a comprehensive, yet detailed perspective of the various faith-related interpersonal matters affecting prisoners in England and Wales.
