Research topic: The Gender Recognition & Reform Project

My research project is an empirical, mixed methods study into the Gender Recognition Act 2004 and possible options for reform. My research is undertaken in the context of increasing gender diversity and is particularly interested in examining how non-binary people perceive and experience the world with regard to the current legal provisions. As a result of the recent public consultation on the GRA 2004, my research has a reform agenda and intends to produce policy-orientated answers to the current questions surrounding reform of legal gender recognition.
