The end of 2013 has seen the launch of LCSS’s Public Policy platform bringing together policy makers, academics and students within the broad field of Public Policy. The platform has set itself an ambitious agenda of organising regular roundtable discussions on topical issues with expert names, informal debates as well as community projects attempting to directly address the issues and challenges which certain sections of society may be facing. The functioning of this platform has been aided by a team with a wealth of experience within the social sciences discipline.

As well as setting out a fascinating agenda, the platform has made a fast start having organised its first roundtable of the term on Foreign Policy-Making in Britain: the Role of Institutional Power as well as a number of informal discussion forums with invaluable presentations on key policy topics.
