Welcome to Issue 6 of our project newsletter

Our second round of repeat interviews with welfare service users is well underway - many thanks to all taking part.

Human rights Do Jobseeker's Allowance sanctions respect the fundamental right to human dignity? That's the question posed by Mark Simpson of Ulster University in his guest blog for our project.
Public spaces Proposals to develop Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) in a number of towns and cities have provoked controversy, not least for their powers on people sleeping rough. Sarah Johnsen's blog investigates.
Antisocial behaviour research Team member John Flint delivered a keynote presentation at the Resolve ASB annual conference in November.
See his slide presentation.

Findings launch We'll be releasing our first set of findings from the project next Spring. We'll have data and analysis from our interviews with policymakers, practitioners and welfare service users. More details on the launch soon.
Tenancy changes It seems that the government wants to end so-called ‘lifetime’ tenancies in England. Suzanne Fitzpatrick and Beth Watts from our research team considered our emerging evidence on fixed term tenancies in a feature for Inside Housing magazine. Read their recent presentation slides on this topic.
Welfare decisions PhD research student Helen Stinson blogged on fundamental questions about the welfare safety net, prompted by her time working with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
