Dr Jack Newman

Jack Newman is a Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, where he focuses on how healthy urban development can be realised though devolution and cross-government working.

Previously, Jack worked at the Bennett Institute for Public Policy, collaborating with the Institute for Government on a review of the UK Constitution. With Professor Michael Kenny, he co-authored a major report on English governance, Devolving English Government. He also helped establish the constitutional review’s guest paper series.

This followed a post at the University of Surrey on the LIPSIT research project, which analysed the link between local economies and the design of political institutions. In 2019, Jack completed a PhD at the University of Leeds, focused on the underlying (ontological) assumptions of UK social policy and the Conservative governments of the 2010s. He also holds an MA Politics from Leeds (2014) and a BA Politics from the University of Liverpool (2010).
