Our core focus is on issues around social security, poverty and social citizenship, topics that have been a core focus of the Department’s work since its foundation in the 1960s.
We have expertise in a wide range of topics, key specialisms including poverty and inequality, welfare conditionality, welfare reform, public attitudes to welfare and lived experiences of welfare. Our work adopts both national and cross-national perspectives and spans a wide range of methodological approaches.
