About us


Policy Scotland’s mission is to generate and provide a space for local, national and international public policy debates.

We foster co-operation between academics, practitioners and policy makers, and pool this collective expertise in order to flesh out new initiatives, test the effectiveness of interventions, generate better evidence and engage a wide variety of audiences.

Our staff team and board have a wealth of experience drawn from backgrounds in academic research and policy making.

Policy Scotland is based at the University of Glasgow, and builds on the University’s research excellence in specialist policy fields including crime, housing, disability, transport, public health, economic and employment policy, education and welfare reform.

Through our research, public events, and brokering collaboration between researchers and policy makers we stimulate new thinking and good practice in Scotland and further afield.
