Organization profile

Profile Information

Founded in 2009, the Centre for Citizenship, Conflict, Identity and Diversity (CCID - formerly the Centre for Research in the Social Sciences) is at the forefront of social science research within the University and beyond. 

CCID provides a central 'hub' for multi-disciplinary research and teaching, drawing together researchers from a variety of backgrounds across the Social Sciences. Our philosophy is: 'Making a difference in the real world'.

Our key aims:

- To produce high quality research, with an emphasis on the application of theoretical perspectives to the real world, the use of innovative methodologies, and the critical examination of policy and practice. 

- To inform and influence public issues through the production and dissemination of research that is applicable to a wide range of research users, in particular policy makers, service users and service providers. 

- To provide research-led and critically relevant teaching to undergraduate and postgraduate students across the social sciences.
