Supporting policy-makers, legislators and regulators

Brunel Public Policy uses our world-leading research to help inform policy-makers, legislators and regulators. We do this in a variety of ways:

  • Drafting and promoting policy briefs, and identifying best practice based on Brunel research to inform debates and policy projects at various levels of government, as well as in the third sector and for policy think-tanks
  • Promoting the policy implications and applications of our research to overseas governments.
  • Actively engaging with select committee enquiries and policy consultation
  • Actively engaging with policy-related requests 
  • Synthesising research to assist with policy scrutiny
  • Offering our expertise in data analysis
  • Evaluating public opinion using both quantitative (surveys) and qualitative (interviews and focus-groups) techniques
