Jonah Bury joined the Crime, Justice & Attitudes team as a researcher in October 2017.
Before joining NatCen, Jonah taught Sociology for two years at a sixth form college in London. Prior to that, he completed his PhD in Sociology at the University of Bristol, where his thesis examined anti-discrimination policies in English professional football, with a specific focus on anti-homophobia policies. The research involved a number of semi-structured interviews with key stakeholders in the professional game.
Jonah has a long-standing interest in qualitative research and has experience using a range of qualitative methods, specifically ethnographic research methods. He has published his research in a number of peer-reviewed sociological journals.
In his role as researcher at NatCen, Jonah is currently working on a range of mixed-methods projects: these include an evaluation of the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) in the UK and an evaluation of a project – related to the UK Government’s Prevent Strategy - which aims to build individuals’ resilience to radicalisation.
