LARIA Conference 2010

Colleagues from the Observatory recently attended the 2010 Local Authorities Research and Intelligence Association (LARIA) Conference held at Royal Holloway College, University of London.  Presentations on a wide range of thought-provoking and innovative research projects are now available on the LARIA website.

Interesting presentations include a Chief Exec’s honest and frank take on the challenges facing researchers with the current squeeze on public sector finances, a revealing ‘ethnographic’ study of teenagers on a South London housing estate as part of a consultation exercise for a massive regeneration programme and the innovative use of social  ‘storyboards’ as a means of gathering young people’s views on the current benefits system.
