As part of our flourishing research culture, we are home to a number of Research Centres
dedicated to specialist areas of academic interest. Together they are representative of the diverse range of study at the University.
The Centres are operated by our academics, utilising University facilities and resources. All of the Centres contribute to academic debate within their particular fields and run regular conferences and events in order to interact with other academics and the public.
The George Bell Institute and the academic work of its human rights scholars was supported by funds from the George Bell Trust. In May 2015 the Trust took the decision that the Trust was not financially viable and a process was put in train to wind up the Trust. This process came to an end in January 2016 and as result the University has closed the Institute and withdrawn the associated Fellowships.
