The Centre for Research on Communities, Identities and Difference (CResCID) is a Research Centre located in the School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences at Kingston University. Its mission is to produce strategic knowledge relevant to global problems by fostering multi-disciplinary research on social justice and how adversity impacts on individuals and their communities.
