This Centre is the coordinating body for new and ongoing research undertaken by academics in International Politics and related disciplines at City, University of London.
Our purpose is to share and develop techniques for informing decision-makers outside academia - in government, business, the armed forces and/or non-governmental and civil society organisations, as well as the media - about the research findings of City academics in their respective fields of expertise.
At the core of this endeavour is a commitment to engage policymakers (in the public, private and non-governmental sectors, as appropriate) more directly in the identification and formulation of research projects in order to prepare for effective dissemination of research findings.
This does not mean that policymakers will be given the lead on the choice and conduct of research projects. Rather, the aim is to spark the interest of potential end-users of the research at an early stage, so that they are keen to learn about the findings when these become available.
