The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    Abstract

    Recent developments in the conceptualisation of disability (1), definition and classification of cerebral palsy (CP), treatment goals, and research on the effectiveness of interventions require synthesis for AHPs in clinical practice. A multidisciplinary consensus conference which included an international group of 24 clinicians and researchers was convened by the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics to consider research and contemporary thinking on the management of CP.
