Professor Tamsin Bradley
Professor of International Development Studies
I am an applied social anthropologist working in international development. I have conducted research exploring the interfaces between gender, religion anddevelopment in India, Pakistan, Tanzania, Nigeria, Rwanda and Sierra Leone. My current research focuses on gender-based violence, with specific projects exploring female genital mutilation in Africa and rape and dowry-related harassment in India. I have secured research grants and consultancy contracts from DFID, ESRC, EU and the British Academy.
I am co-director of the Dowry Project a network of academics and practitioners working to eradicate dowry and related violence. I have published a number of books and articles most recently a volume documenting the life stories of Black Minority Ethnic women in the UK, Women Violence and Tradition: Taking FGM and other practices to a Secular State. (2011, London: Zed Press).
