The Centre for Rural Policy Research is home to an inter-disciplinary team of social scientists focusing on all aspects of the rural economy and society. While much of our research focuses on and is conducted in the United Kingdom, we also have an interest in rural issues around the world, especially in Europe.

In addition to conducting research, including hosting a number of PhD students and externally funded projects, our staff play an active role in the development of rural policy.

As well as general academic and research enquiries, we are also happy to speak to the media on an array of countryside issues.
