Winner of College prize for best Image of Research announced
Stevie captioned the image, which was takenby Hayley Evans from the University's Creative Services team, as follows:
This is Shireen. For Shireen, her family and her friends, hate-fuelled violence and hostility are ‘everyday’ experiences. The impact on Shireen’s life has been devastating; she no longer feels safe to walk down the street, to travel on public transport or to do a supermarket shop. Through our research we have connected with thousands of people just like Shireen who have been verbally abused, spat at and harassed because of their identity or perceived 'difference'. Too many victims suffer in silence, which is why we work with policy-makers and practitioners throughout the UK to improve their responses to hate crime.
