Relaunch of Centre for Wellbeing in Public Policy (CWiPP)
The Centre for Wellbeing in Public Policy, CWiPP is being relaunched and is proud to announce its seminar programme for the autumn semester.
The goals of CWiPP are to consider how people's health and wellbeing can be defined, measured and improved in ways that help policy-makers determine the best use of scarce resources, and to investigate the determinants of wellbeing insofar as these are relevant to policy formulation. The centre is a truly interdisciplinary one, bringing together people from such disciplines as economics, psychology, political science, geography, criminology, animal and plant sciences, public health and mental health.
The management group of CWiPP currently includes Professor John Brazier as Director (ScHARR), Christopher Armitage (Psychology), Dimitris Ballas (Geography), Andrew Dixon (Animal and Plant Sciences), Elizabeth Goyder (ScHARR), Professor Digby Tantam (ScHARR), Professor Joanna Shapland (Law), Professor Martin Smith (Politics) and Aki Tsuchiya (Economics and ScHARR).
