Alumna Shona Minson (1990) named a New Generation Thinker by the AHRC and BBC

We were very pleased to hear the news that Shona Minson (1990), who has been a British Academy Research Fellow at the Centre for Criminology, has been announced as one of ten New Generation Thinkers, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the BBC.

Shona has been selected for her work on the treatment of mothers in the criminal justice system. Originally from Belfast, she is an award-winning criminologist, whose first career as a family and criminal barrister led her to explore families and punishment.

The selection panel noted that ‘Shona is a unique voice and a leading authority on how to do justice better for women and their children.’
