Funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council, 'Coping with Covid in Prisons', offers one of the most comprehensive studies of life in prison during the pandemic internationally. The project drew on an innovative peer-led methodology developed by ex-offender-led charity User Voice in collaboration with Queen's University Belfast and Shadd Maruna, Professor of Criminology at Queen’s University, whose research focuses on desistance from crime and implications for prisoner reintegration. His book 'Making Good: How Ex-Convicts Reform and Rebuild Their Lives' was named the Outstanding Contribution to Criminology in 2001.
