Peter Hopkins is a Professor of Social Geography in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, Newcastle University, Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. His research and teaching interests centre upon the challenges and complexities of inequality and justice, and how these interrelate with debates about equality and diversity. More specifically, his work draws attention to the exclusionary ways in which various forms of discrimination and marginalisation – such as racism, sexism, Islamophobia, sizism and ageism – shape people’s everyday lives, structure the resources available to them and influence their political and social mobility. This work is built upon a commitment to empirical research that is informed both by current debates in academic literatures and theoretical understandings about intersectionality, society and space, as well as – where appropriate – concerns of relevance to policy makers and practitioners.

His work tends to draw upon urban social, feminist and anti-racist research and falls within the following three themes:


·         Young people, place and identity

·         Young people, social identities and political inequalities

·         Youth transitions and intergenerational relations

·         Young migrants, asylum seekers, refugees and ethnic minority groups
