Criminology Grant Success´╗┐

Professor Laura Piacentini along with colleagues at the Universities of Stirling, Dundee, and the Maria and Joao Alexio Institute in Rio de Janeiro has won a research grant award from the AHRC and the MRC through their Global Public Health Partnership. The project, Right to Health in Prison, will establish a sustainable international, trans-disciplinary and inter-sectorial research hub that brings together researchers, policy makers and practitioners working in the areas of global public health and human rights to address the health needs of prisoners in Scotland and Brazil. The project will develop sustainable collaboration between Scotland and Brazil and develop a portfolio of research, evaluation and global participation on prisoner health issues that extend beyond the UK and Brazil.
