Dr Cristina Stefan’s research highlighted in the Vice-Chancellor’s World Changers: Celebrating Impactful Research collection


Our Co-Director of ECR2P, Dr Cristina Stefan, was selected as one of the 13 contributors to World Changers: Celebrating Impactful Research. The University of Leeds Vice-Chancellor, Professor Simone Buitendijk, put together this collection of 13 research essays across an array of disciplines at Leeds to highlight research agendas that are helping to change the world. It was the only contribution highlighting impactful research from the Faculty of Social Sciences at the university level. You can read World Changers: Celebrating Impactful Research on Spotlight.

Dr Stefan’s research essay is entitled Preventing atrocities: How together we can take on this global challenge. It asks why atrocities causing massive human suffering - such as those occurring in Myanmar, Tigray, Yemen, or Syria - keep happening, and what it will take for the world to act together to prevent them. You can also listen to Dr Stefan’s contribution on Preventing atrocities, on the University of Leeds SoundCloud page.
