We are interested in the evolution of politics, the changing role of the state and the political ideas and values that define contemporary political parties, political identities and public policies. Working with colleagues across the University, we are currently developing a strand of research on political parties, and another on the interdisciplinary study of public policy.
Current research projects include:
- Pensions Reform in the UK
- Barriers to women entering Parliament and Local Government – rapid evidence review
- Evidence information Service
- The Future of Scottish Labour: Dissensus and Consensus
