Please note: This website is no longer active. The Building Sustainable Societies project was completed in 2015.
Building Sustainable Societies was responsible for developing two Masters Programmes: MA Security and Justice, and MA Work, Care and Migration.
Both programmes allowed students to be actively involved in directing their own learning, principally through ‘negotiated assessment’, which encouraged students to pursue their own research interests within the framework of the course.
The MA Security and Justice programme continues as a collaboration within the ESSL Faculty at Leeds.
This innovative programme offers an exciting opportunity to understand contemporary issues concerning the interface between security and justice from the perspectives of law, sociology and politics.
The multi-disciplinary approach of this course offers a comprehensive programme through which international and local conflicts over security and justice are analysed, transnational security concerns and crimes are studied and research methodologies in international and comparative criminal justice are examined.
