Policy briefings

The Society facilitates the transfer of knowledge between researchers, practitioners and policymakers through responses to consultations, conferences and meetings, giving evidence, and briefings.

These policy briefings began in 2008. They highlight geographical and related research that can inform on debates, issues and policies in complex and politically sensitive areas. They also highlight areas in which policy actions are needed.
