Professor Nandini Gooptu (Associate Professor of South Asian Studies) has won research funding from the ESRC to investigate the causes of violence against women. The project, of which Professor Gooptu is co-investigator, received £1.76m over three years.

According to the Department of International Development, 'the project will emphasise on the mechanisms of violence in specific cases and localized environments, which will be linked to urban transformation, inequality and emerging gender/racial/caste/class relations through a multi-scalar research design. By gathering historically contextual and granular data, the project takes forward a ‘second wave’ research on violence, specifically sexual violence and domestic interpersonal violence.'
