Changes to the Directors

Alex Duncan, one of the Policy Practice Directors who founded the Company 15 years ago, is today stepping down as a Director. He will continue to work actively through the Company to focus on his research, advisory and training activities. Alex has been instrumental in building The Policy Practice into one of the leading niche providers of political economy research and consultancy in the UK. We thank him for his enormous contribution and look forward to his continuing intellectual leadership of the Policy Practice.


We are pleased to announce that Neil McCulloch and Laure-Hélène Piron who have for some years been Principals have agreed to become Executive Directors and will join Andrew Barnett and Gareth Williams in managing the Company. Our objective is to remain at the cutting edge of applied political economy analysis, helping development practitioners think and work politically to achieve better outcomes.
