Background

Anil is the Law School's Widening Participation Officer and Researcher. His work focuses on the research and practice of the department's strategy for widening access to students from low-participation backgrounds. In doing so, he manages the department's school/college partnerships and organises the department's widening participation activities. He is also co-director of the Law School's Multicultural Scholars' Programme (MSP). For further information, please see the Widening Participation and Multicultural Scholars' Programme webpages.

His interest in widening participation is also served through being an Advanced Skills Tutor for The Brilliant Club and providing academic sessions in outreach programmes, such as 'GOAL', 'UniTracks', 'Realising Opportunities, 'Pathways to Law' and 'Experience Warwick'.

Anil is Chair of the Political Studies Association's Diversity & Equality Working Group. He has a particular interest in the under-representation of people from British black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds within the profession of politics and international relations. As such, he is undertaking work analysing the position of BMEs within the discipline, feeding in to the national initiatives being developed in this area.

Anil is an Associate Tutor for the Warwick Centre for Lifelong Learning (CLL) where he teaches modules on Widening Participation in Higher Education and European Politics.
