The UCL IPPR podcast provides a platform for students and policy experts to examine existing and emerging public policy research. The podcast’s mission is to engage listeners in the policy process through an in-depth analysis of current issues, while also offering students a forum to further develop their research skills. Starting in January, the podcast team will air a series of episodes on a given policy area. The first topic will focus on trade wars, analyzing both their theoretical origins and current trade disputes around the world. The podcast will feature a number of formats to introduce listeners to the given topic, including interviews and roundtables.
