FSA publishes a review of its social science capability

The FSA yesterday published a review of its social science capability, together with the FSA’s Chief Scientific Advisor’s response to the review’s recommendations.

Commissioned by the FSA’s Chief Scientific Advisor and carried out by King’s College London, this review sought to identify the current social science capability within the FSA, identify the capability and evidence that would best support delivery of the FSA strategy, and assess options for delivery.

The review recommends that the FSA:

  • increase the social science capacity within the Agency itself
  • ensure that there is more senior support for social science
  • increase the understanding of how social science can help the FSA deliver its objectives
  • clarify what social science expertise the FSA needs in-house and what type of expertise it can bring in externally

Once these recommendations have been implemented, the social science team should be relaunched.
