Short bio >

Dr Jonathan Roberts holds a PhD from the Department of Social Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), for which he received the Titmuss prize. He has a BA (Hons) in Classics from the University of Cambridge, and an MSc in Voluntary Sector Organisation from LSE. He has taught and lectured at LSE on behavioural public policy, on social enterprise and on the relationship between government and the voluntary sector. Prior to joining LSE he worked for a number of UK charities. Currently he is developing teaching initiatives at LSE’s Marshall Institute for Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship; he also teaches Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Policy and Management at the School of Public Policy, UCL. Jonathan’s research interests include the role of voluntary and mutual organisations in public service delivery, philanthropy, the relationships between state and civil society, social enterprise, and trust in public services. He has a particular interest in education, pre-school and family policy. His doctoral research explored how parents trust pre-school childcare provision. He has recently completed a study of young adults who co-reside with their parents post-university (the so-called ‘boomerang generation’), and is currently researching social enterprises, public service mutuals and children’s centres.
