This pillar focuses all members’ attention on the imperative of translating their theoretical work beyond the walls of the university and academia more generally.
Scholars associated with the Centre are committed intellectuals, with experience in consulting and advising external stakeholders, as well as intervening in the media on topics of their expertise. Praxis sets out two objectives for the Centre’s members:
- first, it invites members to reflect critically on the potential impact their work might have on current political debates;
- second, it makes accessibility a key priority for the work it supports institutionally.
To achieve these objectives, the pillar will feature a series of support mechanisms to ensure research integrity, the effective dissemination of research findings, public outreach events, media training opportunities, as well as expanding our existing connections with stakeholders within the broader political community.
