Launch of the Sheffield Institute for Policy Studies

The external launch of the Sheffield Institute for Policy Studies took place on June 15th 2016 at Sheffield Hallam University’s, Heart of the Campus. It featured a keynote lecture by the eminent journalist and social commentator – Polly Toynbee, entitled “Our Inequitable Life: Can we make Britain fairer?”

Prior to her lecture, Polly also participated in a question and answer session with doctoral students and early career academics on how research informs policy debate. The other component of the launch event was a series of workshops which focused on four key contemporary policy issues: resilience, devolution, failures of citizenship, and fair access.
