Queen's Policy Engagement

Policy Areas

The research base at Queen’s University Belfast cuts across almost every area of public policy, providing valuable insights and innovative ideas relating to the major challenges that we face today. The list below captures this expertise in categories that we hope will be meaningful to policymakers and the wider public.

As the blog develops, this will become an accessible repository of ideas, information and people that are all available to support policymakers across the UK and beyond.

If the area in which you are interested is not represented below, please contact us and we will point you in the right direction. Equally, if you are a Queen’s academic and feel that you research is not covered below, please get in touch.
