Our University's Research and You


-

Do you know someone who has been affected by dementia or are you intrigued by peacekeeping initiatives in violence affected areas? 

Then research from Leeds Beckett could be more relevant to you than you think. 

Each year our University undertakes a plethora of research spanning areas as diverse as health and wellbeing, culture and the arts and cybercrime and security. Furthermore we ensure that our outputs are cascaded down to inform teaching across all our undergraduate courses.

These are just two of the key findings from a recent piece of research led by Professor Alan White, Professor of Men’s Health at our University. Called ‘The State of Men’s Health in Leeds’, the report was commissioned by Leeds City Council and is the first to provide a complete picture of the breadth of issues affecting men within the city.

The Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia 2020 contained over 50 commitments towards making England the best place in the world for dementia care, research and societal dementia awareness. 

Research by Leeds Beckett is highlighted twice in the Department of Health’s updated implementation plan, which specifies how to meet these commitments. 

As part of one of these projects our University collaborated with Together in Dementia Everyday to provide a week long programme of initiatives to raise awareness about dementia in society which coincided with Dementia Week. This involved a number of interactive sessions such as public lectures and ‘bite–size’ seminars open to staff, students and the wider public.

Myanmar is a country in a state of political transition and there are ongoing ceasefire agreements and peace negotiations going on. 

Our University is undertaking new research led by Dr Rachel Julian, Course Leader for the BA (Hons) International Relations and Peace Studies. Working alongside international researchers and an NGO, Rachel will explore how local knowledge can be harnessed in unarmed civilian peacekeeping to promote community resilience against violence.

At Leeds Beckett we are committed to building a strong research profile regionally, nationally and internationally. The Research Excellence Framework (REF) Exercise which recognises the ‘quality, reach and significance’ of academic research deemed our University’s research as ‘world-class’ across all four of our faculties.
