Mwenda will be leading our level two module, 'Policing and the Police'. His wider research interests are in transnational security, policing governance, and anti-terrorism in emerging economies.
Dr Ala Sirriyeh will take up her post as Lecturer in Sociology later this month. Ala's PhD research has been published as Inhabiting borders: a study of 16-25 year old refugee women's narratives of home. Ala has research interests in migration, identities, cities, and personal relationships. She will be contributing to a
