University of York

Social sciences at York is closely aligned to seven research themes, and geared towards strong impacts in both policy and practice. Our work builds upon sustained relationships with local and national government, and strong links with international agencies (WHO, UNICEF Gates Foundation, etc). Work in the Global South has had particular impact with regard to health inequalities, and education for the disadvantaged. Our focus is upon evaluative and evidenced based methodologies, often based on new interdisciplinary approaches that allow for the measurement and evaluation of complex settings.
