SCIE lecture: Professor Mike Austin
SCIE 11 June 2008
In June 2008 Professor Mike Austin, visiting Staff Director of the Bay Area Social Services Consortium and the University of California at Berkeley, gave a follow-up lecture and presentation at SCIE. Updating and reflecting on his findings from his travels around local authorities and voluntary sector providers in the UK and meetings with SCIE staff in 2007, Mike paints an informative and often amusing picture of social care research through the eyes of an informed outsider, and shows there is much to be learned from comparing evidence-based policy and practice in the US and the UK.
