Social Policy

The School for Policy Studies links theory, policy and practice in a multidisciplinary, research-intensive environment. Our research engages with and influences national and international policy. Our team of policy experts come from a wide variety of backgrounds in social policy research, social work, sociology, poverty, gender violence, disability studies, childhood studies, health and social care, urban studies history, human geography, economics, psychology, physical activity nutrition and health sciences, family and child welfare, based within seven specialist research centres. Our research examines policy areas that affect us all in day-to-day life, influences and challenges policies implemented by governments and institutions at a local, national and international level and investigates the issues, factors and attitudes underlying the social concerns that make the headlines every day.
