With a general election in May and a government spending review to follow this is a critical time for social science to shout loudly about its value to the UK economy and society.

On 16th March at the LSE the Campaign for Social Science will present its new pre-election report The Business of People.  We hope for a fruitful dialogue with social scientists at LSE on the current state and future direction of social science in the UK.

  • A Q+A session involving the panel and audience closes the session
