ASAP UK builds on the work of ASAP international developing debate and dialogue around the multidimensional issue of poverty and its many causes. ASAP UK is unique in its ability to combine academic excellence with policy influence, with policy makers, civil service representatives and academics cross collaborating on projects to raise greater awareness, increase momentum and impact real change.
Our London base enables close links with the City of London, parliament and policy makers meaning our events are attended by influential academics, policy makers and industry professionals. We aim to use this expertise to generate political action and impact, to enhance our academic research and to inform policy decisions. It is through our interdisciplinary nature that we can achieve realistic and effective results in reducing poverty.
The ASAP United Kingdom chapter was formally launched in December 2012, and is led by a board of Trustees. Cat Tully is the Director of international consulting firm School of International Futures, and former Strategy Project Director of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
The chapter is looking for volunteers, UK-based contributors to the global ASAP projects and any ideas/proposals for projects. All welcome!
