New website uses journalism to strengthen policy
Society Central is the work of celebrated journalist Fran Abrams and the University of Essex. They hope to improve public policy decisions by making sense of relevant research.
The site provides social policy news in a bid to forge better connections between academic researchers and those involved in policy-making.
It will specialise in finding research evidence to fuel informed debate on current issues.
Although based at the University of Essex, Society Central’s reach is national. Contributions are welcome from any organisation with a focus on social policy.
