Launched on 5 February 2018, the series aims to provide short, policy-relevant briefings on issues of public interest and contemporary concerns within GLOBE’s thematic areas written by GLOBE Centre colleagues. The series supports the GLOBE Centre’s objective of disseminating our academic research in accessible and relevant manner to broader audiences, including policymakers, the media, civil society groups and the general public.
Series editor, Dr Andreas Kokkinis, Assistant Professor at Warwick Law School, says that he hopes the series will contribute to bridging the gap between academia and policy making, thus improving the factual base on which crucial policy decisions are made. “We are delighted to be launching the GLOBE Centre Policy Brief Series. Our Policy Briefs will be focusing on current and forthcoming issues of public policy, drawing on cutting-edge research undertaken by the GLOBE members and aiming at a broad policy and regulatory audience. I would like to thank Research Retold Ltd, the specialist consultancy which helped us create the series, and Ms Mihaela Gruia personally, for their excellent support and advice. I would also like to thank Warwick Law School for their generous financial support, without which this project would not have been feasible.”
GLOBE Centre Director, Dr Celine Tan, Associate Professor at Warwick Law School says that the series will be an exciting platform for colleagues to think through the broader policy implications of their research and convey these ideas through a medium that is accessible and relevant to non-academic audiences. “Our colleagues are doing excellent research and we need to have a way of communicating this research in a way that matters for people who are making decisions and confronting the challenges facing us as a society, both locally, nationally and internationally. We hope this series will offer this opportunity to share our research with policymakers, advocates, the media and the public at large.”
The policy briefs will be published electronically and will be made available on this website. There will also be a limited print run of each policy brief in the series.
