Wellbeing in Politics and Policy

Series Editors: Bache, Ian, Scott, Karen, Allin, Paul

Wellbeing in Politics and Policy brings new lenses through which to understand the significance of the dramatic rise of interest in wellbeing as a goal of public policy. A number of academic disciplines have been influential in both shaping and seeking to explain developments. This series provides a distinctive contribution by putting politics and policy at the centre. Contributions are encouraged from a range of perspectives, including those located in other disciplines that speak to core political themes (e.g., accountability, intersectionality, legitimacy and power).

The series seeks to explore these themes through single or comparative policy studies in a range of settings – international, national and local. The pandemic has triggered a renewed and more urgent interest in wellbeing, increasingly embedded in issues around inequalities, mental health, institutional wellbeing, and wellbeing and the environment. Contributions that speak to these issues are particularly welcome.

The series incorporates a wide range of perspectives from critical to problem-solving approaches, drawing on a variety of epistemologies and methodologies. The editors encourage proposals from practitioners with valuable experience to share and offer a high level of editorial guidance to all authors. The series welcomes proposals for short-form books (Pivots), edited collections and monographs.
