Through the stories of three generations in thirty families, Julia Brannen explores men's lives, migration, employment, fatherhood, father-son relationships and intergenerational transmission over the life course.

Research on Europe at UCL
The latest (2008) Research Assessment
Exercise rated UCL as the best research university in London, and
third in the UK overall, for the number of its submissions which were
considered of ‘world-leading quality’. Over
250 academic UCL staff are engaged in research and scholarship on
European and EU related subjects across faculties, disciplines and
methodologies: from economics and political science to law; from
language, culture and history to health; from climate change and the
history of science to the built environment. Some of the key schools involved
in the research on Europe and the European Union, such as UCL’s School
of Slavonic and East European Studies, the School of Public Policy or
the Faculty of Laws, are recognised as among the leading centres for
research and teaching in their field world-wide.
Much of this research is carried out in cooperation with other European Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) – over 2800 such research collaborations with over 330 HEIs, public organisations and commercial enterprises from 34 European countries have been established under the current European Framework Programmes FP7 and the previous FP6 alone.
UCL is also dedicated to enhancing the academic, public and policy impact of its scholarship. UCL’s research strategy has identified four ‘Grand Challenges’ to address complex contemporary problems by bringing together different kinds of expertise and methodologies. The European Institute forms a part of this investment.
UCL is among others a member of the Russell Group, the European University Association, and the League of European Research Universities.
