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.
Our aim is to alert a diverse audience of users, practitioners, voluntary organisations and policy-makers to our research in order to help shape discussions of the policy reforms crucial to the future prosperity and well-being of society.

We investigate a range of the many local, regional, national, cross-national and global developments, issues and social problems which are relevant to contemporary societies. These include:
A list of recent research can be found on our international research page.
All research in the School of Sociology and Social Policy falls under eight thematic areas. IcPSP contributes to the school's research strategy by delivering research in line with the Policy Analysis theme.
IcPSP is part of two of the University's Research Priority Areas - Governance and Public Policy; and Rights and Justice.
