Leicester research cited in Parliament

Excellent research from our University which has gone on to inform and shape Government reports has been cited in Parliament.

The work of our leading academics from different disciplines has been praised by Peers and research findings have shaped discussion on key matters including Brexit, health issues and children’s welfare.

The three areas of research are:

  1. Research into Mental Health Needs -  The late Professor Howard Meltzer, who died in 2013, was Professor of Mental Health and Disability. He has this month been cited in a House of Lords Debate on the Higher Education and Research Bill.
  2. Research on patient and public involvement in health and social care - SAPPHIRE research has been cited in a House of Lords briefing on service user representation in health and social care and Healthwatch. Research by Dr Pam Carter and Professor Graham Martin, from the SAPPHIRE group (Social science Applied to HEalthcare Improvement Research), Department of Health Sciences, was cited extensively in the Lords Library briefing.
  3. Migration Law Research: House of Lords Report on Brexit, the United Kingdom and Ireland - The work of Professor Bernard Ryan, of the Leicester Law School, has been relied upon extensively in a House of Lords report on Brexit.
