Left Out and Locked Down: Rapid research findings on experiences of marginalised and excluded people during Covid-19 in Scotland

Speakers: Professor Sarah Armstrong, Professor Michele Burman, Dr Marguerite Schinkel, University of Glasgow.
The discussion will be chaired by Dr Cara Jardine, University of Strathclyde

Between July and December 2020 a large team of researchers at Glasgow University explored the experiences of four groups already facing isolation prior to the pandemic: people seeking asylum and refugees; survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence; people under criminal justice control; and people living with disability or long-term health conditions.

This talk will overview key findings of the research including the nature of vulnerability faced by many in these groups, with investigators leading on investigation of criminal justice and domestic abuse cohorts speaking to specific findings in these areas. Methodological challenges of researching during a pandemic might also be a topic for discussion.

Full results of the study are reported on the project website: https://scotlandinlockdown.co.uk/findings/
