London Research and Policy Partnership

How can humanities research contribute to policy?

There is always a danger that the humanities are overlooked in favour of the social sciences or ‘hard’ sciences in research-policy engagement, when the former have an important role to play. Professor Jo Fox (University of London), Professor Pascale Aebischer, (University of Exeter) and Dr Justin Colson (University of London), presented a range of insightful case studies on what the humanities, with their focus on history, language, art and culture can bring to policy making. 

The recording of the event is available here.
