International Centre for Public and Social Policy

The International Centre for Public and Social Policy (IcPSP) brings research into social policies and public policies together.

The centre is unique as social and public policy are often located in separate university departments - our centre enables closer collaboration between academics and researchers, doctoral students and taught masters students from both disciplines.
