Reader in Criminology and Criminal Justice, University of East London

Dr Daniel Briggs uses ethnographic methods with a wide range of social groups – from the most vulnerable to the most dangerous to the most misunderstood. He has researched numerous different social issues and his work takes him inside prisons, crack houses, mental health institutions, asylum seeker institutions, hostels, nightclubs, gypsy camps, care homes and hospices, and homeless services. His research interests include social exclusion, culture and deviance, and late modern identities. Pan Macmillan is soon publishing his newest book, titled 'Deviance and Risk on Holiday: An Ethnography of British Tourists in Ibiza'.
