Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion: analysis of Labour’s legacy

In July 2013, the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) at LSE published a series of Research Reports and Working Papers¬†analysing the legacy of the 1997-2010 Labour government¬†as part of its ‘Social Policy in a Cold Climate’ research programme.

This programme is designed to examine the effects of the major economic and political changes in the UK since 2007, particularly their impact on the distribution of wealth, poverty, inequality and social mobility. We will also examine geographical variations in policy, spending, outputs and outcomes, with a particular focus on London. The analysis includes policies and spending decisions from the last period of the Labour government (2007-2010), including the beginning of the financial crisis, as well as those made by the Coalition government since May 2010.
