About the Institute for Policy Research

A leading institute of public policy research in the UK.

About us

We undertake and enable policy-relevant research to make an impact, especially through building links with the worlds of policy and practice as well as by increasing public understanding of policy research through our Public Lecture and publications series.

We deliver activities for policymakers, researchers and practitioners to enable two-way learning and original contributions to both research and practice, delivered through our Policy Fellowship Programme, Visiting Fellows and Visiting Policy Fellows Schemes, and the Professional Doctorate and MSc in Public Policy offered with the Department of Social and Policy Sciences at the University of Bath.
