Associate Professor
Durham University

Dr Michelle Addison is an Associate Professor in Criminology at Durham University. She is interested in the criminalisation of poverty and the role power, stigma, and social harm play in generating social and health inequalities. Dr Addison’s research is broadly concerned with a key long-term vision of social justice for those facing the greatest social and health disadvantages in society. She focuses on social harm and the experiences of people subjected to marginalisation, minoritisation, and oppression - particularly around gender, class and ‘criminalisation’. Dr Addison has recently completed her Wellcome Trust study examining health, stigma and social inequalities amongst people who use drugs. She is currently deputy-PI of a large ESRC project (PI - Dr Steph Scott; £1.9 million): 'Disentangling involvement in and the impact of integrated health and criminal justice systems: A North of England Research Consortia'. She has recently published: Addison, M. Lhussier, M and Bambra, C. (2023) ‘Stigma Relations as a Social Determinant of Health: “I’m not what you ***king see me as”, Social Science and Medicine – Qualitative Research in Health, and is co-editor of the forthcoming book Marginalised Voices in Criminology (Stockdale and Addison, Routledge, 2024).
