2014–15 Annual Report

A report on the Blavatnik School of Government's aims and achievements over the past year, published in July 2015.

We’re looking ahead to a significant new chapter for the School as we prepare to move into our new building and welcome a full cohort of 120 MPP students and 6 further DPhil candidates at the start of the academic year.

Our plan for the next five years is to build on our successful delivery of teaching, research and engagement whilst further growing and developing our partnerships, reach and impact. We have set out three priorities for our work:

  • To make our MPP the best in the world (where ‘best’ refers to its contribution to improving government);
  • To conduct impactful research and develop ‘a Blavatnik approach’;
  • To drive innovative and influential models of engagement with senior policy makers.

The 2015 Annual Report serves as an overview of our current priorities, teaching and research programmes, and governance; it is also a tool for us to determine the School’s year-on-year progress towards improving government.
