Established in 1996, the aim of Policy Press has always been to try to improve social conditions with publications that will make a positive difference to learning and research, policy and practice. In essence, Policy Press is a publisher with a purpose. Based at the University of Bristol, UK, Policy Press is now well-known as a leading international publisher of high quality books and journals across a wide range of subjects.
