  1. The impact of Brexit on the rural economy and communities

    Hack-polay, Dieu; Mendy, John
    Grant application: The UK referendum whose outcome has been to see the projected withdrawal of the UK from the European Union has given rise to a critical debate in the political, social and economic spheres across the country, Europe and the world. A significant part of the debate unsurprisingly concerns migrant workers since immigration was a key premise on which the referendum was won by Brexiters. This research centres on the impact of Brexit on the recruitment of EU migrant workers in rural areas in the UK. We particularly use as a case study the county of Lincolnshire which has a...

  2. Building bridges to success: BTEC pilot project

    Smith, Mark F.
    While BTECs have been broadly praised for having widened access to university over recent years, it is recognised that this brings its challenges to Higher Education providers, Schools and Colleges.

This article introduces an initiative at the University of Lincoln that begins to build bridges to support BTEC students' success.

  4. Everyone loves select committees these days, but have they really changed?

    Bates, Stephen; Goodwin, Mark; McKay, Steve
    The Wright reforms have been widely credited with reinvigorating select committees. Stephen Bates, Mark Goodwin (University of Birmingham) and Steve McKay (University of Lincoln) take issue with this assumption. They found the reforms have made little or no difference to MP turnover and attendance, which are driven by the parliamentary cycle. When MPs are jostling for payroll vote positions and trying to keep up with constituency duties and votes in the Chamber, select committees are likely to suffer.

  11. Video game subcultures: playing at the periphery of mainstream culture [special issue of GAME Journal]

    Ruffino, Paolo; Carbone, Marco Benoit
    This issue of GAME Journal offers an overview and a series of case studies on video games from the point of view of subcultural theory. There has been little work in game studies from this perspective, which offers a theoretical frame for the ever growing complexity of the audiences involved with the medium of the video game. The study of subcultures on the other hand has a long standing and complex tradition which culminates in what has been recently defined as the “post-subcultural” theoretical scenario.

It considers a range of different areas of law and conflicting perspectives within the UK’s animal welfare, contract, criminal and environmental law and also addresses issues of ownership and liability. In particular, the research examines how both domestic and wild cats are subject to different protection under the law and the manner in which ambiguities concerning the status of wild and domestic cats impose liability on humans for their actions in dealing with cats. The research was commissioned by the Feline Advisory Bureau...
