Parenting, Politics, and Petrol Bombs: trying to reduce child abuse in Africa
How can social science make a real difference in the daily lives of thousands of teenagers and their families in Africa? Explore our interactive case study of ERC funded-research by Prof. Lucie Cluver
Over the last decade, Oxford Social Sciences have shown an outstanding track record of attracting significant funding from the European Research Council (ERC). The ERC funds exceptional individual scientists to carry out high-risk, high-gain research at the frontiers of knowledge.
On 16 March 2017 Professor Roger Goodman, Head of the Social Sciences Division hosted an event to mark the 10th anniversary of the ERC. This event celebrated the world-leading research and researchers supported by these grants.
Reflecting the diversity of social sciences research at Oxford, the programme of talks encompassed wide and varied topics. Each of the speakers is the Principal Investigator leading at least one ERC award and their TED-style talks focus on powerful ideas generated and explored by their projects.
This event was organised by the Social Sciences Division’s Research and Impact Team. For more info about this event contact email@example.com.
