Dr Nancy Lombard

Lecturer in Sociology and Social Policy

Bio

Nancy’s work looks at younger people and men’s violence against women, maintaining that young people’s own position in childhood directly impacts upon how they conceive of, construct and understand such violence.

She is one of the founders and coordinators of the Gender Based Violence Research Network (GBVRN), and also an Associate Director of the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (CRFR) based at the University of Edinburgh, where she leads on the research theme of gender-based violence. Presently she sits on the Scottish Government’s Cross Party Group on Violence Against Women.

Nancy’s research interests include men’s violence against women, particularly domestic abuse; violence prevention; methods of working with children and young people, gender; feminism and knowledge exchange activities. She has been a volunteer, researcher and activist within the violence against women movement for 18 years.
