Welcome to the York Centre for Public Policy and Law
Today's public policy problems require innovative solutions, integrating law, policy and public administration. For this reason, the YCPPL draws together legal experts, social scientists and others from the public policy sector to address issues of access to justice, human rights and social policy, accountability and ethics in the public sector and the globalization of public policy.
As a collaborative interdisciplinary research centre our mandate is to engage in and support research that meets the needs of the broader community, in particular the needs of government and public policy makers, non-governmental organizations, citizen advocacy groups and social movements in Canada.
YCPPL was established in 2008 to foster and facilitate collaborative interdisciplinary research in the field of public policy and law among York University's faculty and students. Its goal is to assist with the research needs of the broader community, including government and public policy makers, non-governmental organizations, and social movements in Canada. It provides accurate and reliable research on important legal and public policy issues and makes it available to federal, provincial and municipal policy-makers.
