The Birmingham Policy Commissions bring leading figures from the public, private and third sectors together with Birmingham academics to generate new thinking on contemporary issues of global, national and civic concern.

The Birmingham Policy Commissions have produced reports on:

Each Commission -

  • agreed the key questions to be explored
  • invited and considered evidence from a range of organisations, experts and interests as well as drawing on relevant research within the University
  • identified implications for society at large or specific sectors/groups
  • made innovative and challenging policy recommendations

In addition to informing public policy and debate, the Commission findings inform the direction of future research, teaching and knowledge exchange activities across the University of Birmingham.
