This year our conference will explore opportunities for improving the way government accesses, assesses and makes use of expertise from the humanities, and offer examples of the significant contribution these disciplines have made to public policy.

Conference theme

The study of the humanities can provide context, meaning and narrative to many of the cultural considerations that frame policy making. For example, the humanities offer insight into the motivations for human actions, political communication, and the politics of well-being, which contribute to a society based on a culture of democratic argument. This conference will both address the opportunities and also consider practical steps that can be taken to help increase the day-to-day interaction between research in the humanities and the work of government.

Panel discussion topics include

-The multiple dimensions of climate change

-Understanding the financial future with lessons from the past

-The place of the humanities in dealing with conflict

-The role of evidence and analysis in effective policy making

Who should attend?

This conference has been designed for an audience of policy makers, academics, business leaders and early-career researchers who have an interest in the relationship between the humanities and policy.

Cost of attending

-Standard cost (£50)
