Policy Report 

This new ‘Place to Be’ report published by the Academy of Social Sciences in partnership with SAGE Publishing, brings together 24 case studies showcasing what university-based social scientists are doing now to make local areas, businesses and public services better, and improve social and economic outcomes.

It shows the vital role that social sciences will need to play in the ‘levelling up’ agenda, and makes policy suggestions for how that could happen.
