The SSRU Seminar Series provides a platform for debate across the five broad strands of SSRU's work including:
- Childhood, gender and society
- Evaluations of social interventions
- Sexual health, reproduction and social exclusion
- Perspectives, participation and research
- Evidence for Policy and Practice
The seminar series hosts speakers who set out methodological advances that progress social science research or share empirical findings that explore human rights, social justice and the development of human potential.
These seminars are free and all are welcome to attend; occasionally they require booking a space in advance. Please click on the link for individual seminars to see booking instructions.
Unless otherwise stated, seminars are held on Wednesdays at 13:00-14:00 on a monthly basis, in Room G1 Seminar Room, 18 Woburn Square, London WC1H 0AL.
