Victor ThompsonVictor Thompson
Associate investigator, Rider University, United States.
Dr Thompson (Ph.D., Stanford University) received his Ph.D. in sociology in 2010 from Stanford University. While at Stanford, he was a fellow at the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity from 2005-2007 and taught courses on race and ethnicity, political sociology, and urban sociology. He has written on race, crime and public opinion in addition to racial classification. His dissertation, “Learning from Multiracial Identity: Theorizing Racial Identities from Response Variability on Questions about Race,” examined response variability to questions about race using census data and large sample surveys. He is currently working on two projects. The first, entitled “Race, Crime, and Public Opinion”, explores the relationship between race, public opinion and beliefs about criminality in America. His second project is a longitudinal study of racial and ethnic enumeration practices on censuses and population registers around the world. He teaches classes on research methods, race and ethnicity, and race and crime.

Project coordinator, University of Waikato, New Zealand.
Jenine Cooper completed her Masters thesis in anthropology in 2003, which involved working with the small Congolese communities in Auckland and Hamilton in order to understand their experiences as recent immigrants to New Zealand and put their 'voice' to those experiences. The research provided Ms Cooper with the opportunity to participate in community events within the Congolese community and the wider African community within Hamilton.
