Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. 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.

    Since 2005, Youth Scotland’s Girls on the Move programme has been increasing young women’s physical activity levels in Scotland, by addressing the barriers that prevent their participation. The programme has been evaluated by a team from the School of Sport at Stirling University, led by John Taylor, Research Fellow. This team, in partnership with Youth Scotland, has recently published an Impact Statement to summarise the findings of the evaluation. The Impact Statement contains facts, figures and case studies which the influence Girls on the Move has had on young women across Scotland.
