Exhibition: How Social Policy Research Shapes the World You Live In

Hosted by the Department of Social Policy

gallery@oxo, Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse Street, South Bank, London, SE1 9PH

This comparative and contemporary exhibition will showcase Social Policy research responding to global challenges in areas such as inequality, work, family, poverty, migration and education.


Social policy is constantly implicated in our daily lives and in those of our loved ones both in the UK and round the world. Going to school, visiting the doctor, claiming a pension, coming into contact with the police, paying tax or accruing wealth, migrating to another country or being forced out of one’s home, living in substandard housing, achieving upward mobility, or facing precarious work – all of these are social policy issues, and it is important that they are informed by the latest knowledge and best research. This exhibition showcases how LSE Social Policy researchers are providing new knowledge, asking fresh questions, and generating new insights across these areas from around the world. Find out how social policy shapes the world we live in and how new generations of social policy analysts are providing answers to some of the most pressing questions of our time.
