Sir Ivor Crew, currently Master of University College Oxford was previously Vice-Chancellor of the University of Essex. He was director of the ESRC Data Archive from 1974 to 1982, and co-director of the British Election Study from 1973-81. 

With Dr David Rose, he established the British Household Panel Study and founded the Institute of Social and Economic Research at Essex in 1990. From 1977-82, Crewe was editor of the British Journal of Political Science and from 1984-92 he was a co-editor.

Ivor Crewe undertook extensive research from the early 1970s to the mid-1990s in elections and voting behaviour, work which included developing the argument that voters' identification with the Conservative and Labour was steadily weakening as a result of the decline in class loyalty and in the connections voters made between class interests and party policies.

In 2013 he co-authored a publication on 'The Blunders of our Governments', a study in policy failures, with Professor Anthony King.

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.
