Centre for Rural Policy Research
We are an inter-disciplinary team of social scientists interested in the rural economy and society. We particularly focus on: agricultural, environmental and bioenergy policy; sustainable land management; agro-food regulation; sustainable communities; the social and economic development of agriculture; and impacts of climate change on farming and land use.
As well as general academic and research enquiries, we are also happy to speak to the media on an array of countryside issues.
