Kat Smith wins Bleddyn Davies prize.

Kat Smith (Global Public Health Unit, Social Policy) has been awarded this year’s Bleddyn Davies Prize for Best Article Published in Policy & Politics in 2013 by an early career researcher.

Kat received the award at this year’s Policy & Policy conference (September 2014) for her article, ‘Institutional Filters: The Translation and Re-Circulation of Ideas about Health Inequalities within Policy’. The article takes a discursive institutionalist approach to explaining how and why research-informed ideas about health inequalities were transformed as they moved into policymaking contexts across the devolved UK.
