Welcome to the International Centre for Public and Social Policy
The International Centre for Public and Social Policy (icPSP) brings together academics, researchers and postgraduate students from a range of disciplines, but who share an interest in the policy dimension of some of the major issues faced by contemporary societies.
With a focus on global social justice, members of the centre undertake research on a number of social and public policy developments at local, regional, national and transnational level. The activities of the icPSP include high-impact publications and events; academic teaching and professional training; and engagement with policy-makers, practitioners and local communities.
