Policy Press

Publishing with Purpose

Global social challenges

Globalisation and new technology have changed the world fundamentally and Bristol University Press aims to address the societal challenges this creates.

Bristol University Press is unique - it is a young university press with a bold, new vision that emerges out of Policy Press’s long-held, critically acclaimed reputation as a key publisher on social issues, with an ethos of social justice and respect for diversities.

We want to get cutting-edge, evidence-based and peer-reviewed social science into the hands of those who can use it to make a difference, providing reliable knowledge that carries opportunities for practical impact.

Reflecting on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the World Economic Forum’s Global Challenges, and on our own priorities, we are in a unique position to define our vision in alignment with these global issues.
