Research within the School of Social and Political Sciences has helped to inform public policy. Research projects have explored parliamentary reform, political participation by young people and scrutiny of the intelligence services.

The active Social Policy research base in the School of Social and Political Sciences ensures that staff who teach on this programme are involved in current Social Policy debates and that students are made aware of new developments and issues in the area.
