Mr Andrew Eccles


Social Work

Personal statement

My research and knowledge exchange interests are around the intersection of political science and social policy, viz. the use of policy instruments, policy discourses, and the excercise of power in the implementation of social policy. I have a particular interest in exploring these themes, but also ethical issues, across the use of technologies in social care; more specifically telecare technologies. My teaching interests are in a similar vein but a broader arc; contemporary social policy, ethics, and interprofessional organization & working across the human services.
