Applied criminological research: Social media and political extremism

ESCR-Festival logo

This workshop will provide an opportunity for School/College learners to attend an interactive workshop providing them with an overview of funded research recently undertaken in Manchester. The convenors worked with the Council and some local schools and colleges to explore whether there were any links between social media use and political extremism. The workshop will use the project as an example of how to plan research, gather data and analyse it.

This is an invitation only event. For further details, please contact Muzammil Quraishi (m.quraishi@salford.ac.uk)
