CLOSER Policy alert: The Home Office publishes their first Areas of Research Interest (ARI)

News |

Houses of ParliamentAre you a researcher looking to inform the evidence priorities of a government department?

The Home Office wants to hear from you!

The first Home Office’s ‘Areas of Research Interest’ (ARI) document sets out some of the key areas where they would welcome more research. It aims to help inform UKRI’s strategy and highlight potential avenues of investigation to the wider research community.

Produced by the Home Office’s Chief Scientific Adviser and Science Advisory Council, the ARI emphasises the crucial role science has in all the Home Office’s priority areas: crime, policing and fire, migration and borders; countering terrorism and extremism, promoting growth, and transformation. In particular, they are interested in looking at targeted behavioural approaches, looking at what works best for people of different ages and backgrounds.

For more information, take a look at the Home Office 2019 ARI report.
