Research is at the heart of City’s academic activities, with a renowned reputation for fostering interdisciplinary activity, innovation and creativity.
Through research, our academic staff seek to advance knowledge in our areas of specialism and to bring value to society.
Our academics produce impactful research on a range of issues, including those that primarily affect women. This includes studies into the prevalence of FGM among women in the UK, the representation of women in board rooms or as experts in the news and the impact of women’s mental health on the development of children.
