Heritage and Policy

Learning Event: Heritage and Policy (University of Leeds, UK 6 December 2019)

In collaboration with Dr Hana Morel from University College London (UCL) and the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s (AHRC) Heritage Priority Area, this 1-day workshop aims to explore the intersections and relevance of Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF) heritage research and public policy, including ways of ‘bringing learning back to the UK’, by providing participants with a useful guide and practical tips on how to engage with the policy process. This is a fantastic opportunity for those wanting to translate research findings into policy impact but are unsure how to do so.

The areas the workshop will be focusing on specifically are:

  • Introducing the policy process and stages of advocacy, including open calls for evidence and responding to them.
  • Facilitating change through bridging heritage research with evidence-based policy.
  • Suitable ways of engaging with policymakers.

Keynote speakers include: Richard Hebditch (Government Affairs Director at The National Trust), Professor Andy Gouldson (Director of Policy@Leeds), and Professor Ian Baxter (Director of Scottish Confucius Institute for Business & Communication).
