London Met policy expert awarded Fellowship with Welsh Parliament, 2020

Diana Stirbu, Professor of Public Policy and Governance at London Met, has recently been awarded an academic fellowship with the Welsh Parliament.

Her project will investigate ways of measuring the effectiveness of parliamentary committee activity, from scrutiny of legislation, scrutiny of government, policy development to public engagement and diversity of evidence.

Through a series of contextual research projects, in-depth qualitative interviews and workshops with the main stakeholders — politicians and officials primarily — she is developing a Theory of Change framework that can be customised for each committee, but which will contain common measures of effectiveness and methods of assessing them.
