Dr Jo Casebourne is Programme Director with the Institute of Government. 

 

Dr. Jo Casebourne joined the Institute for Government in April 2015 and leads the Institute's work on public services. This currently includes projects on the local delivery of public services, public service markets and decentralisation in England.

 

Jo has spent the last 15 years conducting research on public services, welfare-to-work, employment and skills, disadvantaged groups in the labour market and work-life balance issues. Prior to joining the Institute, Jo was a Director at Nesta (the UK's innovation foundation) for three and a half years, leading the organisation's research on public services and innovation for social outcomes.

 

Before joining Nesta, Jo was Director of Research at the Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion for five years, where she led the organisation's research work, conducting high-profile research and evaluations for central government, local government and charities. She has also been a Senior Researcher at the Institute for Employment Studies and a Researcher at the Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion.

 

Jo has an MA from the University of Cambridge, an MSc from the University of London and a PhD from the University of Cambridge. Her PhD compared the Clinton welfare reforms in the US and the Labour Government's welfare reforms in the UK, and their effects on work and poverty.

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.
