Nuffield News, Summer 2011

04 August 2011

The summer edition of our newsletter is now available to download.

Issue 18 includes the latest from the evaluation of the Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC), details of our response to the Government's National Curriculum Review and some stark figures about the shortage of maths skills among university students. 

We also feature news of an exciting discovery made by two of our Science Bursary students that could help scientists better understand how to block cancer growth, and an update on 2009's Measuring up? report about young witnesses. 

New research about the impact of select committees is covered, as are the findings from a study of the first year of the coalition government. We also consider recent analysis of proposed legislation for shared parenting and reflect on the international symposium held by the Nuffield Council on Bioethics in June.
