Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance
The Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance (CCIG) is a University designated Centre of Research Excellence
We critically engage with the question of how people, things and places are brought into being through various practices or acts.
We consider notions of families, personal relationships, households and communities, whilst also recognising their continuing significance at political, policy and personal levels.
We see the social and the psychological as both inseparable and individual forces that produce each other and our research gives equal emphasis to both.
We focus on understanding the registers and mediums through which publics are mobilised, summoned, and performed.
Our aim is to think, debate and develop new approaches to politics collaboratively and, hopefully, stimulate new thinking and public discussion on these key topics of our time.
