Ryan Bushell

PhD Student

Research Subject and Interests

My research interests include the interrelations between gambling, class and legislation. The impact of private sector organisations on public sector services and deconstructing ‘social investment’ and how it interacts with capitalism and the welfare state.

My PhD is an investigation into the field of social investments. It shall assess what impact this area is having on social policies and frontline service providers and shall determine what implications this may have on the current welfare landscape. Are social investments a mechanism to alter the public/private sector balance?
