But Eastminster is different to most University blogs.  It includes expert analysis from our academics, but they do not live in an ivory tower.  Eastminster therefore also includes posts from our students, and politicians, practitioners and activists as part of our perspectives from the field of politics series.  It therefore brings our research closer to the world of politics.  We welcome contributions – please do get in touch.
