Dr Anna Souhami is Senior Lecturer in Criminology at the School of Law.
Anna is an ethnographer, and her current research is an ethnography of policing in the remote Northern islands of Scotland. Through extended fieldwork in two remote archipelagos, her research explores how order is maintained in remote island communities and the role and culture of police work within it.
Anna’s previous ethnographies include a study of policy making in central government through an extended ethnography of the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales (YJB), the public body responsible for the oversight of the English and Welsh youth justice system; and a study of the formation and operation of Youth Offending Teams (YOTs), the multi-agency organisations which deliver youth justice services throughout England and Wales; and (with Janet Foster and Tim Newburn at LSE) a major Home Office-funded study of policing in England and Wales to explore the impact the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry.
