Queen Mary Global Policy Institute

The new Queen Mary Global Policy Institute aims to be a leader in research and policy solutions worldwide.

The Queen Mary Global Policy Institute will act as a hub for policy-facing initiatives across the disciplines, support a strong translational research agenda and enrich the student experience through dynamic opportunities for global interactivity and learning.

We aim to connect Queen Mary researchers with policy makers and influencers around the world to address global challenges through a programme of project-led research, visiting fellowships, training and education, and high level strategic partnerships.
