Working papers and briefings


Our briefings include a wide range of reports and papers which make available to a wider audience the findings of the Centre's research and investigations in farming and the rural economy. Although many are regional in focus, the series also includes shorter versions of national studies. Our briefings (in PDF format) can be downloaded from the links below, or are available from the Centre in hard copy form at £5 each.

Working papers

Our working papers are largely research based and are aimed at both an academic and policy audience. Current working papers are available at £5 each (incl. p&p). Older working papers (those hyperlinked below) can still be purchased from the Centre for £5, but are also freely available here as downloads.
