Stuart Macdonald, Professor of Law and Director of the University’s Cyber Threats Research Centre, will take over leadership from Prof. Conway, the founder of VOX-Pol. Prof Conway is quoted in Swansea University’s press release:
“I’m very pleased to be handing over leadership of VOX-Pol to Prof. Macdonald at Swansea University. While I will continue to be involved with the work of the network, the transition to new leadership is a great opportunity to reinvigorate our efforts across research, partnering, events, and policy. I look forward to VOX-Pol’s continued scholarly and practical impact under Swansea’s stewardship.”
Prof. Macdonald stated:
“We have always worked to promote collaboration across different sectors and jurisdictions, so are delighted to have the opportunity to lead this truly international network. VOX-Pol has a reputation worldwide for producing research of the highest calibre that informs policy and practice on this important issue.”
A new section on the VOX-Pol website shows the people and institutions in the reconstituted VOX-Pol Network, which now extends to 65 scholars from 25 different universities in 13 countries across six continents.
