  • CPC members meet with Department for Work & Pensions

    Members of the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology were well represented at a meeting with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) at the University of Southampton on 22 May. The meeting, arranged by Public Policy|Southampton, saw 17 policymakers from the DWP attend to hear how researchers from across the Social Sciences at the University contribute to the DWP’s Areas of Research Interest.

    Many CPC members presented on their latest research, demonstrating how their findings can make a contribution to the evidence base on sustainable, good quality work and pensions policies. The day successfully forged knowledge exchange and new collaborations between members of SSPC and Government policymakers.
