Dr Stephen Burrell is a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow in the Department of Sociology at Durham University, based in the Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse (CRiVA). His research focuses on men, masculinities and violence, and he completed a PhD on work with men and boys to end men's violence against women in 2019, before undertaking an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship on the role the business sector can play in violence prevention. He is currently researching the connections between masculine violence and the climate crisis, and engaging men and boys in caring for the planet. He has also carried out research with Prof Nicole Westmarland and Sandy Ruxton for the Government Equalities Office on the impacts of masculine gender norms in the UK, and a British Academy-funded project on men's activism to end violence against women and girls.
