Cambridge Public Policy

Developing new, integrated, cross-disciplinary and evidence-based approaches to public policy

Cambridge Public Policy (CPP) is a new initiative set up to coordinate, support and encourage the development of new approaches to public policy, informed by the best available research, teaching and practice.

Throughout the year CPP runs open lectures, seminars and other events providing audiences with the opportunity to hear from, challenge and debate with ministers, senior civil servants, representatives from industry and academia.

The new Master’s in Public Policy (MPP), that launched in October 2013, is our first major teaching programme providing a rigorous training in the development of evidence-based policy.

‘ The new Master’s in Public Policy is a welcome and important innovation, which should improve the skills of future public service leaders and raise the quality of their policy making.’
