The Nuffield Politics Research Centre supports research into accountability, representation, and the study of British elections.

We also seek to bridge academic research in politics and non-academic audiences via Westminster Bridge at Nuffield College.

Our aims are:

1. To conduct innovative research, of greatest long-term benefit to the public, into problems and challenges in contemporary politics

2. To specialise in questions of accountability and representation; including the ways in which mass publics respond to policy outcomes and other political developments

3. To better communicate political science research to people in public life
