Sociology at City University London has an internationally recognised tradition of theoretically informed, empirical research that engages critically with defining societal transformations and policy challenges. In recent years, we have consolidated and developed our research profile around four cross-cutting themes: European Social Research and Analysis; Media, Communication and Society; Policy and Governance; and Structures of Inequality.
Our research centres and clusters promote cutting-edge research that achieves impact and influence through working to improve: knowledge and understanding; policy and practice; training, standards and service provision; and wider behaviour change.
