A wider LSE Public Policy Group team runs four other blogs on behalf of the LSE. BPP’s sister blogs are:
USApp’s central mission is to increase the public understanding of social science in the context of American politics and policymaking. Our focus is broad-based and multidisciplinary, covering all aspects of governance, economics, politics, culture and society in the United States, and in its continental neighbours, Canada and Mexico. We seek to achieve a qualitative improvement in the British, European and rest of the world’s understanding of domestic politics in the United States at the level of states and major cities, and encompassing the full range of American social, urban and regional issues.

EUROPP’s purpose is to increase the public understanding of the social sciences in the context of European governance and policy making, both at the European Union level and at the level of countries across Europe and within its neighbourhood. Our remit covers all aspects of European government and politics and all aspects of European public policy.
LSE Review of Books will publish reviews of the latest releases from across the social science disciplines, providing readers with informative, well written, and timely reviews. We believe that academic communication is changing; it’s becoming faster, more interactive, and more open and book reviews and essays shouldn’t be confined to the shelves in lonely journals or stuck behind expensive paywalls. Book reviews are part of the bigger conversation about how academics can refresh engagement with the public and with each other, for the 21st century.
The Impact of Social Sciences blog is a hub for academic researchers, think-tanks, and policymakers, and anyone else interested in maximising the impact of academic work in the social sciences and other disciplines. We hope to encourage debate, share best practice and keep the impact community up to date with news, events and debate.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the HEIF5 programme run by LSE Knowledge Exchange.
