Natasha Carlin

PhD Candidate
University of York

Natasha Carlin joins the Vulnerability & Policing Futures Research Centre having been awarded an ESRC-funded White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership 1+3 Associated Studentship at the University of York.

Natasha graduated with BA (Hons) in History and Politics from the University of Chester, where she specialised in social policy and cultural history. Most recently, Natasha worked in the charity sector for an anti-racist education organisation, where she worked with children and young people and trained adults in trade unions and schools. She has worked alongside communities and resident engagement projects in her work as a local councillor.

Natasha’s research interests include vulnerability, racialisation and ethnicity in relation to policing, and policy approaches to abolition.

Natasha’s PhD ‘Overpolicing and Vulnerability in Minoritised Communities’ will explore how the Prevent framework and police-led safeguarding interventions creates vulnerability racially in caregivers. It will examine how intergenerational vulnerability is created and explore the consequences of the Prevent duty on caregiver relationships.
