Dr Nancy Lombard

Reader in Sociology and Social Policy

Glasgow Caledonian University


Dr Nancy Lombard’s research, in the main, looks at violence, gender and young people. Her findings have generated policy change and investment in gender equality programmes across health, education and the voluntary sector. Dr Lombard’s research underpins the Gender Friendly Nursery Awards offered by the NHS in nurseries and is currently piloted in schools. She used her success in obtaining a Beltane Honorary Fellowship to develop a citywide gender awareness training programme for primary schools which is supported by Education Scotland and endorsed by the Scottish Government’s Equally Safe Education campaign. She is currently leading a Scottish Government study looking at women’s experiences of the criminal justice system when they have experienced domestic abuse and stalking and has just completed an evaluation of DASA. Dr Lombard is an Associate Director at CRFR and also Research Lead at GCU having curated a new Gender Research Group that offers interdisciplinary membership. She sits on the editorial board of the internationally recognised Violence Against Women journal and the advisory board of the Journal of Gender Based Violence. Dr Lombard is a disability advocate and community activist. She lives in Glasgow with her partner, five children, three cats and a dog.
