Research carried out by Professor Georgios Antonopoulos has convinced law enforcement agencies to adapt their practice and national and transnational policies to combat the organisation and effects of illegal markets of smuggling in migrants and tobacco.
Research findings from 2006-2010 have been incorporated into the training and practice of law enforcement officers and into national and transnational policy documents in Greece. They have also contributed to United States federal health policy and a national debate in New Zealand on tackling the contraband cigarette market.
Teesside's knowledge and expertise in this area is internationally renowned and advice on national and transnational policies is in demand by government bodies in Europe and America.
A series of studies with residents of very deprived neighbourhoods in Teesside has reached important conclusions about the realities of worklessness and poverty. Many of the findings run counter to prevailing thinking amongst politicians, policy makers and practitioners and have been used to influence the thinking and practices of organisations that seek to tackle problems of poverty and worklessness.
The research has informed political debate in the UK and EU, impacting on the democratic process, and has been used nationally and regionally to improve the way that problems of worklessness, poverty and 'the low-pay cycle' are understood and responded to.
There is a wealth of research projects taking place to further knowledge and make an impact on people's lives.
