The Business of People

A new report "The Business of People: The Significance of Social Science over the Next Decade" by the Campaign for Social Science was launched on the 24th February, by Rt Hon Greg Clarke MP, Miniter for universities, Science and Cities. 

As the UK general election and spending review draw near, this report makes recommendations to politicians and Policy makers in Westminster, Whitehall and in the devolved administrations, as well as funding councils, think tanks, higher education and businesses.

The report sets out demands for new economic and social knowledge, then illustrates the many ways in which social scientists are contributing to changing practice and deepening knowledge. It outlines the size and structure of UK social Science, its contribution to GDP, and how social science graduates are working in firms, government and the third sector.
