Sustainable Housing and Urban Studies Unit
Established in 1996, the Sustainable Housing and Urban Studies Unit (SHUSU) is a multidisciplinary research group. We seek to understand complex social issues and work towards social justice and environmental sustainability within the urban environment. We are actively engaged in research that highlights the processes, outcomes and impacts of marginalisation on individuals and communities.
The work of SHUSU reflects the complex and interconnected challenges faced by contemporary society. These challenges include ensuring fair access to housing, equitable welfare systems and services, population mobility, positive social relations within communities, ageing populations, environmental sustainability and social inclusion.
SHUSU brings together internationally renowned researchers as part of a multidisciplinary team and our approach is underpinned by the principles of collaboration, co-production and critical analysis. We provide a welcoming, inclusive and dynamic environment for postgraduate researchers, who work alongside our core research team to deliver projects that facilitate the practical application of knowledge.
SHUSU is co-directed by Professor Lisa Scullion and Dr Graeme Sherriff.
Our projects are currently being transfered to a new site. For the moment, you can see some of our current and archive projects on other pages.
