Centre for Health and Well-being in Public Policy (CWiPP)

The Centre for Health and Well-being in Public Policy considers how people´s health and well-being 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 well-being insofar as these are relevant to policy formulation.

The centre is truly interdisciplinary, bringing together people from such disciplines as:

  • Economics
  • Psychology
  • Political science
  • Geography
  • Criminology
  • Animal and plant sciences
  • Public health
  • Mental health

Throughout its activities, the Centre aims to combine theoretical development with policy relevance. It is fully committed to building its research portfolio, and becoming a leading international research centre in a major UK university.
