A new hub for policy debate
Issued: Mon, 25 Nov 2013 15:49:00 GMT
Policy makers, academics and practitioners will stimulate fresh thinking into public policy debate through the University’s new research hub, Policy Scotland. The hub, which launched in June 2013, draws on existing research and leads new projects and debate on public and social policy.
According to Principal, Professor Anton Muscatelli, Policy Scotland will provide a hub for policy research and increase the University’s capacity to contribute to policy thinking in Scotland, the UK and internationally. ‘This is a critical time for public policy development given the current and important debates around constitutional change, and I’ve no doubt that Policy Scotland will have a tremendous contribution to make to these discussions.’
The first of Policy Scotland’s seminars tackled the debate on the currency of Scotland in the event of Scottish independence. Find out more about the currency debate and other debates at www.glasgow.ac.uk/policyscotland.
