Ideas for an Incoming Government

Newcastle University academics are helping to inform debate around social renewal by taking part in a series of blogs in the lead up to the General Election.

Staff are invited to post their “Ideas for an Incoming Government” on the NISR blog, which is being promoted through social media and brought to the attention of policy makers.

"During a general election campaign there is an opportunity to contribute to public debates, campaigns and policy formulation, and to engage with voters and parliamentary candidates,” says Professor Mark Shucksmith OBE, Director of Newcastle Institute for Social Renewal. "Meeting colleagues from across the University and hearing about their research, I’m struck by how much of what we discover has relevance for policy, and could help inform better decisions by government."
