Engaging with Policymakers (Research Staff Development Opportunity)
Research Staff Development Opportunities.
At some point in their career, many researchers will be asked to provide advice to policymakers in government, the public sector or the private sector. In this session, we will discuss some of the different ways that researchers can engage with Westminster and with Whitehall. We will look at how policymakers access information to help them make decisions and explore some of the different routes that researchers can use to engage in parliamentary processes. We will also discuss how to write an impartial summary of your research and situate your work in a wider policy context. We will work with practical examples with plenty of time for discussion.
