The Campaign for Social Science is the outward-facing, advocacy voice of the Academy of Social Sciences. The Campaign currently works in particular to amplify the voice of social sciences in policy issues affecting all social science disciplines and Higher Education Institutes across the United Kingdom.
Campaign activities focus on evidence-led briefings and reports, events and promoting social sciences in the media. We advocate to inform and influence public policy with social science evidence and promote the benefits of investment in social science education, research and infrastructure.
The Campaign is supported by a coalition of universities, learned societies, charities and publishers.
We raise the profile of social science in the public, press and parliaments.
We seek to:
- inform and influence public policy with social science evidence
- be regularly in the news and in the media with comment on social science issues
- speak with authority on the state of social science
- promote the benefits of investment in social science education and research
Achievements so far
So far, we’ve successfully influenced policy, got our message out, and brought people together in the cause of social science. We are working now to maintain and build on that success in this time of great change.
