The study of the humanities can provide context, meaning and narrative to many of the cultural considerations that frame policy making. For example, the humanities offer insight into the motivations for human actions, political communication, and the politics of well-being, which contribute to a society based on a culture of democratic argument. This conference will both address the opportunities and also consider practical steps that can be taken to help increase the day-to-day interaction between research in the humanities and the work of government.

Panel discussion topics include:
  • The multiple dimensions of climate change
  • Understanding the finacial future with lessons from the past
  • The place of the humanities in dealing with conflict
  • The role of evidence and analysis in effective policy making

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.
