The Bartlett


Informing Policy

Bartlett staff provide expertise and evidence that informs public policy from the local to the global.

At The Bartlett, effecting public policy is integral to our work. Outward facing with a diversity of disciplines, our policy engagement is broad and far-reaching. We don’t stop at understanding things better, we ask how and where we can add value. From multimillion projects funded by UK government to co-produced research with local partners across the globe, we are working together to tackle pressing policy challenges. As experts in our fields, we serve as advisors on parliamentary committees, independent committees, and even national elections.

With UCL Public Policy, we are contributing to recommendations on key policy priorities:

We bring policy into the classroom too. On a field trip to Freetown in Sierra Leone, or on placement with the Greater London Authority, we challenge our students to think outside of the university and become part of the policy process.

Bartlett Public Policy Board

Chaired by the Bartlett Faculty Lead for Public Policy, the Bartlett Public Policy Board (BPPB) brings together representatives from all Bartlett departments to support and amplify policy activity across the Faculty. With support from the Bartlett Public Policy Manager, the Board organises events to stimulate cross-disciplinary policy discussion, policy placements for Bartlett staff, as well as producing case studies to highlight successful policy engagement.

The Board works closely with UCL Public Policy. Find out who represents each Bartlett department below.
