The Society promotes the understanding of psychology and contributes psychological expertise to the decision-making process. We have the evidence-based knowledge and expertise to support policymakers who want to learn more about how psychology can help shape society.
We do this by:
From activities of individual members to issues of wider concern, psychological expertise can contribute to policy-decisions.
Through the Society, our members contribute scientific, evidence-based submissions to consultations from governments and other organisations on policy and fact-finding initiatives.
From time to time the Society is invited to give evidence to Select Committees Parliamentary seminars.
We also contribute to and sponsor parliamentary seminars to help policymakers who want to learn more about how psychology can help shape society.
We monitor activities, including Parliamentary questions, debates, and select committees in UK Parliaments and Assemblies. We keep members up to date with key information.
The Society has two internship schemes. These are currently under review.
Science In Parliament (SIP) is the Journal of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee.
The Committee is an Associate Parliamentary Group of members of both Houses of Parliament and British members of the European Parliament, representatives of scientific and technical institutions, industrial organisations and universities.
