Leading thinkers from the world of politics and policy will grapple with key issues around inequality at our flagship Policy Week event in November

Policy Week 2014 will include lectures, debates and workshops organised by researchers across the University, featuring expert academics, high-profile figures and policy influencers.

Dozens of events will take place on theme of Addressing Inequalities – and the week will mark the launch of the University’s Social Responsibility signature programme of the same name.
