Biography

Dr Caroline Lanskey is an affiliated lecturer at the Institute of Criminology. Her core research interests stem from her cross-disciplinary experience of education and criminology and include youth justice, with a particular focus on educational issues, citizenship and migration, youth voice and participation, the experiences of prisoners' families and research methodologies. Since joining the Institute she has worked on a number of research projects: an evaluation of a training intervention for staff in secure settings for young people; an ESRC postdoctoral research fellowship on the education of young people in custody; a study of risk and protective factors associated with the resettlement of imprisoned fathers with their families; and an analysis of criminal justice processes through the eyes of families bereaved through homicide. She has set up the Education and Youth Justice website: http://www.edyj.org.uk/ as a hub for information on education of young people in the youth justice system and has recently completed a project on the education pathways of young people in the youth justice system funded by the Society for Educational Studies. A summary of the research is available HERE. Dr Lanskey teaches and supervises students on the MPhil, Diploma and MSt in Applied Criminology. She is a visiting research fellow at the Open University’s International Centre for Comparative Criminological Research and a member of the ESRC peer review college.
