Objective, brief and non-technical, CEP Election Analysis is a series of background briefings on the policy issues in the June 2017 UK General Election.

This series discusses the research evidence on some of the UK's key policy battlegrounds, including education, health, immigration, industrial strategy, living standards, regional policy and Brexit.

These analyses are provided by some of our expert researchers and draw on some of our past and current research. Earlier analyses of other elections are available: including the 2016 referendum vote to leave the EU (BREXIT), 2015 UK General Election, 2010 and 2005 UK Elections, the 2012 US Presidential Election, European Elections and Scottish Referendum.

We will try to answer enquiries relating to this work whenever possible. Press inquiries to Romesh Vaitilingam (Tel: 07768-661095 Email: romesh@vaitilingam.com), or Helen Durrant (Tel: 020 7955 7395 Email: h.durrant@lse.ac.uk).
