Ms. Christina Pantazis

Ms. Christina Pan­tazis is a researcher of the School of Pol­icy Stud­ies, Uni­ver­sity of Bris­tol, UK. She is a mem­ber of the Townsend Cen­tre for Inter­na­tional Poverty Research and she is cur­rently involved in a major ESRC project exam­in­ing the extent and nature of poverty in the UK.

Ms Pan­tazis’ work focuses on social harm and crim­i­nal­i­sa­tion. With col­leagues from the uni­ver­si­ties of Queen’s (Paddy Hill­yard) and Birm­ing­ham (Simon Pem­ber­ton) she has been devel­op­ing a new dis­ci­pli­nary area — Zemi­ol­ogy or the study of social harm. Her spe­cific inter­ests lie in gen­dered harm and the harms asso­ci­ated with poverty and inequal­ity, par­tic­u­larly in the con­text of the reces­sion and aus­ter­ity. She is co-​editor of the Pol­icy book series ‘Stud­ies in Social Harm’. Her lat­est work on crim­i­nal­i­sa­tion has focused on the war on ter­ror and its impact on the Mus­lim com­mu­nity as the new ‘sus­pect community’.
