Peter Kemp

Vice-Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Public Policy

Peter is the Vice-Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Public Policy. He is also a member of the Oxford Institute of Social Policy and a Senior Research Fellow at Green Templeton College.

Before moving to the Blavatnik School in 2011, Peter was the Barnett Professor of Social Policy and Head of the Department of Social Policy at Oxford. In previous posts he was Professor of Social Policy and Director of the Social Policy Research Unit at the University of York; the Professor of Housing and Social Policy at the University of Glasgow; and the inaugural Joseph Rowntree Professor of Housing Policy and founding Director of the Centre for Housing Policy at the University of York.

Peter’s main area of research is housing and housing policy, particularly housing allowances and private rental housing. He has also undertaken research on welfare reform and on homelessness. Recent books include Housing Allowances in Comparative Perspective (2007), Transforming Private Landlords: housing, markets and public policy (2011, with Tony Crook), and Private Rental Housing: comparative perspectives (2014, with Tony Crook). He was elected to the Academy of Social Sciences in 2011.

Throughout his career, Peter has contributed to debates about the impact and reform of public policy. He has been consulted about housing allowance reform by government officials in Britain and overseas. He was the Special Advisor to the House of Commons Select Committee’s Inquiry into the Local Housing Allowance. Peter was a member of the UK Department for Work and Pension's Housing Benefit Reform Programme Board (2002-06), which provided oversight of the Labour Government's reforms of the housing benefit scheme. He was subsequently a member of the DWP's Housing Benefit Strategy Committee (2006-10).
