Professor David Herd wins British Academy research grant

The project is for an international network to make a comparative study of the effects of and responses to different hostile environments, and to propose urgently needed changes to national and international asylum practices.

Co-applicants from Kent, including Dr Matt Whittle, from Birmingham, Professor Lyndsey Stonebridge, and from the Refugee Tales project, including Anna Pincus, will collaborate with a team of international academics, activists and people with lived experience of hostile environments. Among the outputs will be briefing papers to the governments of the UK, Italy, Canada and USA, and to international agencies.
