    About Andrew Dunn

    I joined the University of Lincoln as a Lecturer in Social Policy in April 2013.  I was also a Social Policy Lecturer in my last post, at the University of the West of Scotland.  Before that I had a succession of research jobs - at the University of Lincoln, the Policy Studies Institute, the University of Bradford, Swansea University and Liverpool John Moores University.  I am currently co-writing a student textbook for Palgrave Macmillan called ‘Welfare Policy and Work’.  In my spare time I am an adviser to David Sprason, the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) spokesman on ‘Welfare and Social Policy’. 

    Department Responsibilities

    I am Programme Leader for Social Policy.  I coordinate one undergraduate module - ‘Welfare Policy and Work’.  I also teach on the following undergraduate modules: ‘Applying Research’, ‘Researching in Social Science’, ‘Social Issues and Social Justice’, ‘Community and Conflict’, ‘Comparative Politics and Policy’, ‘Debating Welfare States’ and ‘Analysing the Policy Process’.
