24 February: Workshop in Wellbeing in Politics and Policy led by SPERI Associate Fellow Ian Bache

Next week Ian Bache, Professor of Politics at the University of Sheffield and Associate Fellow at SPERI, will present a new paper on the ‘Politics and Policy of Wellbeing: Understanding the Rise and Significance of a New Agenda’ at a workshop organised by the Centre for Wellbeing in Public Policy (CWiPP) and the Governance and Participation Research Group at the University of Sheffield. The paper draws on a forthcoming book (with Louise Reardon) of the same title.

Oliver Zwirner, Visiting Researcher at the University of Leeds, will give a paper on ‘Wellbeing and Environmental Agendas: Mutually Supportive or Cannibalising?’. Oliver is a specialist in designing environmental and sustainability performance indicators, drawing from a broad range of experience in business, research and policy.

Ian Bache is the Co-Director of CWiPP and the co-investigator of the Community Wellbeing Evidence Programme of the ‘What Works Centre for Wellbeing’ which was launched in 2015. He was also the principal investigator and convenor of an ESRC seminar series on The Politics of Wellbeing.

The workshop will take place on Wednesday 24 February from  2.30pm to 4.30pm, Room 2.16 in the Elmfield Building.
