How we work

University-wide Strategic Research Initiatives (SRIs) are intended to work across disciplines, to make connections between different research groups and subject areas. Under the Public Policy SRI we recognise that policy problems have multiple dimensions and by bringing different groups and perspectives together we can shed new light on complex policy problems, and investigate novel ways of exploring the policy process. We intend to work in the following ways in order to achieve this:

  • generate interdisciplinary research on the policy process and new ideas for policy
  • produce relevant and accessible policy papers and opinion pieces relating to research and important policy questions of the day
  • support a thriving research community around topical themes relating to public policy
  • hold workshops, meetings and other forums for researchers, policy makers and other stakeholders to debate and discuss links between research and policy. 
Please use our People Directory or contact our Research Coordinator to learn more about the SRI or join us.

About Us

We aim to support public policy research across Cambridge University, working with colleagues in science, social science, the arts and humanities, to apply new thinking to public policy problems and promote research and analysis into the public policy process. We hope to connect and raise the profile of existing public policy related work across the University and support collaborative research that includes policy development in a range of subject areas. 

Contact us if you are interested in joining the initiative or would like to know more.
