The Crick Centre


The aim of the Crick Centre is to study and promote the public understanding of politics (broadly defined) in a manner that cultivates debate and encourages engaged citizenship around the world.

It therefore seeks to close the gap that has arguably emerged not just between politicians and the public but also between academe and society more broadly.

The Crick Centre is based in the University of Sheffield’s Department of Politics, the top-rated department in the UK for researching Politics.
