This event was held in partnership with UpRising’s Emerging Leaders Network (ELN).
Research in Action was designed to show a selection of UpRising’s ELN Fellows the value of robust humanities and social science research in making policy.
This event proved a great opportunity for the world of academia and the lobbying community to engage in a roundtable debate with younger people; to hear their ideas about where research can add to policy; and to encourage them, as the policymakers of tomorrow to recognise and use good quality research in their careers. This small and select event was led from within the British Academy Fellowship by Professor Steve Machin FBA.
