We would like to congratulate first year PhD student, Celestin Okoroji, for winning the Popular Prize at the LSE Research Festival 2016 and receiving Highly Commended for the Charles Booth prize last week.

His poster focused on his MSc dissertation which looked at the social representations Jobseekers allowance claimants. He is hoping to take this work further in his PhD, and will look at the ways in which these representations are internalised and/or resisted as social identities and what effect this has on the individuals ability find and sustain gainful employment.

His PhD supervisor, Dr Ilka Gleibs, noted, “Cel’s work is of outmost importance to understand unemployment and poverty in times of even more severe cuts to the ‘welfare state’.”
