A REVIEW OF THE BRITISH ACADEMY REPORT, PUNCHING OUR WEIGHT: THE HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES IN PUBLIC POLICY MAKING

Authors


Abstract

The report argues that policy-makers fail to make effective use of the high quality research of UK academics in the humanities and social sciences. Yet greater co-operation between the government and academia could undermine the independence of the latter by increasing the role of the state in the funding and direction of university research.
