Friday, 28th November, 2008

The ESRC magazine ‘Britain in 2009: The state of the nation’ is now available. Produced with a public audience in mind, it addresses a wealth of issues concerning modern Britain including a number of research bulletins from the Public Services Programme. Oliver James’ research shows that despite objective improvements in public services performance citizens remain unimpressed. Research by Tim Leunig finds that although railways are better regulated now than in Victorian times the quality of services, particularly for London commuters, has not comparatively improved. And, John Curtice explains why the current agenda for consumer choice in public services provision needs to be nuanced enough to take account of which choices the public actually want.  

Britain in 2009 is on sale in a number of High Street shops in the UK.
