Welcome to the British Politics and Policy blog
BPP is a multidisciplinary academic blog run by the London School of Economics and Political Science. Our central aim is to increase the public understanding of British politics and policy by providing accessible academic commentary and research. We have no editorial “line” beyond a commitment to communicating social science research and commentary in ways that enhance public debate and understanding.

Beatrice has been managing editor of the blog since December 2022. She previously worked as the deputy editor of the Green European Journal. Prior to that she had worked as an assistant in the House of Lords and as a copy-editor for an English-language newspaper in Istanbul, Turkey. Email: email@example.com
