Social Science Research Unit (SSRU)
Founding Director Professor Ann Oakley
Director Professor David Gough
Founded in 1990, the Unit's mission is to engage in and promote rigorous, ethical and participative social research and to support evidence-informed public policy and practice across a range of domains including education, health and welfare.
Our work is guided by a concern for human rights, social justice and the development of human potential. To this end, SSRU engages in:
- research and scholarship of international significance
- the communication of evidence to relevant audiences
- high quality, research-informed learning and teaching programmes, consultancy and other work.
SSRU is part of the Department for Childhood, Families and Health.
In addition to this main SSRU website, we have satellite websites for some specific areas of work:
