The concept of wellbeing is of prime importance when it comes to discussions about emotional and psychological health. And from the Politics of Wellbeing group at Sheffield University comes …
“The Politics of Wellbeing seminar series … an ESRC [Economic and Social Research Council] funded interdisciplinary project aiming to identify and communicate the distinctive contribution the politics discipline can make to the wellbeing debate and policy development in the UK and beyond.
Wellbeing as a concept and as policy has been researched and debated extensively in the fields of Economics, Psychology, Sociology, Geography and others. However, the discipline of Politics has been largely silent, leaving potentially important theoretical and empirical insights absent from debates. In this context, the primary aim of this seminar series (funded by the ESRC) is to bring the Politics discipline into dialogue with other disciplines and with policy-makers, to identify and communicate its distinctive contribution, and to contribute to well-being policy debate and policy development in the UK and beyond.
… The Politics of Wellbeing series is run by Ian Bache, Professor of Politics at the University of Sheffield; Karen Scott, Lord Richard Percy Fellow, Newcastle University and Charles Seaford, Head of Well-being, new economics foundation.”
