Institute for Policy Research central team

We carry out public policy research, deliver programmes for policymakers, practitioners, researchers and postgraduates, and run high-profile public events.

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 run the Policy Fellowship Programme, Professional Doctorate, and Visiting Fellows and Visiting Policy Fellows schemes.
