Research in the Centre

A central Mission of the Stanley Burton Centre is:


  • to conduct research into the Holocaust, its implications and subjects closely related to it, including Jewish history, inter-faith relations, anti-Semitism and racism, fascism and extreme right-wing political movements, crimes against humanity and genocides.
  • to expand the production of scholarly publications in these areas to bring the particular contribution of the Stanley Burton Centre to current debates on the Holocaust and its related issues.

All members of staff of the Stanley Burton Centre engage in internationally recognised research.

Book Series

Our book series, in conjunction with the publishers Palgrave Macmillan, aims to demonstrate the continuing relevance of the Holocaust and its issues.
