Karim Murji is Professor of Social Policy at the University of West London. His research and publications cover areas such as racism, race equality and social policy, migration, and policing. With John Solomos and others, he is currently working on an ESRC-funded project on the Open City, which investigates how the city accommodates new forms of urban life, through the social reconfiguration of its spaces and places, and looks at the ways urban government at the city-wide and borough scales reflect, promote or limit the idea of the open city, using London as a case study. With Sarah Neal he is the Editor of Current Sociology, and they were previously the editors of Sociology.
