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. Team The Crick Centre is based in the University of Sheffield’s Department of Politics, the top-rated department in the UK for researching Politics. The Department provides a vibrant intellectual environment of scholars engaged in research across all areas of the discipline of Politics and beyond. A number of department staff are also Fellows of the Crick Centre and contribute towards its research agenda. The Crick Centre offices are located in the Department on the second floor of the University’s historical Elmfield Building.
