Downing Street


Research is a core element of the work of the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Lincoln.It contributes to knowledge, responds to problems, and feeds into and enhances teaching.

The Policy Studies Research Centre (PSRC) acts as the research focus for the School, undertaking research at local, regional, national and international levels across a range of policy-relevant areas of social research. While the majority of members of the PSRC are from the School, others are drawn from cognate areas, such as the School of Health and Social Care. There are five main research groups in the PSRC:


Governance and regulations(2)
 Social inclusion(2)
 Global Civil Society and Human Rights
