Irene Hardill is Professor of Public Policy and Co-Director of the Civil Society and Citizenship Research Cluster at Northumbria University. Her research on the changing world of work, public policy and the lifecourse sits at the intersection between our two Human Geography research clusters: ‘Migration, Identity and the State’ and ‘Children, Youth & Families’. She is a Fellow of the Social Sciences and has led and worked in multi-disciplinary research teams (cross institution and cross national). In addition to managing an extensive list of ESRC-funded projects, she has managed projects from other sponsors including the Leverhulme Trust, AgeUK and Age Concern England, the English Regions Network, the Canadian High Commission, and the French Government.
