Rufat Babayev has been awarded a grant by the British Academy for a project entitled "EU migrants' rights and UK welfare reforms: Jobcentre plus practies"

Janet Ulph is currently part of a group led by the Arts Council and the Museums Association working to produce ethical guidelines relating to museum closure for museum staff and governing bodies.
