About us

Sociology at Westminster has an established profile of innovative research that is internationally engaged, committed to social justice, and which makes an important contribution to wider public and policy discussion.

Pursuing both theoretical and empirical tangents, our work has attracted external funding, informed government policy and gained local, national and international media coverage. We regularly collaborate with colleagues across Westminster in Law, Planning and Transport, Tourism, English and Cultural Studies, Architecture, and Politics and International Relations.

We have an active research culture, supervise postgraduate students, and run a popular series of Open Research talks that host established and emerging scholars from across the UK and internationally.

Research themes

Our research spans three main themes: Transnational Communities, Ethics of Contemporary Culture, and Social Policy Studies.
