Oxford University has conversations with national government and politicians on an extensive array of issues. From funding for research to advice on exam reform, student funding and regional economic development. In addition, barely a week passes without an Oxford academic giving expert evidence to select committees in the Lords and the Commons on one of the many issues which are covered by Oxford research.
