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.
