Social Policy Research Groups
We are a group of academic staff from several disciplines with an interest in intentional communities. We are currently organise and run a bi-annual symposium and attempt to bring together Academics, people living in intentional communities, researchers, developers, policy makers and housing associations to examine the phenomenon of communal living.
The Social Policy research group has interests spanning governance, social housing, welfare policy, international policy transfer, homelessness, and the devolution of decision-making. We are motivated by multi-disciplinary research which brings about positive change for individuals and communities.
