The Political Settlements Research Programme has commissioned a series of ‘Stories’ from established journalists to synthesise what we do and to draw out links between and findings from our diverse set of research projects. PSRP Stories offers a new route into the work that we do. These Op-Ed articles from professional journalists tackle the big ideas from our work, offering a voice to our researchers and opportunity to outline the broad findings from our interlinking research projects. We will continue to commission further Stories as Phase II of the PSRP progresses.
