Personal profile


Claire Fox joined the University of Manchester in July 2010 as a lecturer in Criminology. Her academic interests - which often overlap with her work at the Centre - focus on victimisation, particularly of those who are ‘hidden’ or hard to identify, such as migrant populations, young people who are offending or at risk of offending, and those who have experienced Honour Based Abuse.


Claire's recent research includes the Horizon2020 funded PROMISE project and an N8-funded project, ‘Early identification of honour-based abuse’ (with Dr Caroline Miles, University of Manchester, Karma Nirvana and West Yorkshire Police).

As the Director of EDI, Claire has responsibility for driving forward the School of Social Sciences' commitment to equality and diversity within the workplace.
