Policy in Wales

The Institute in Wales responds to a range of consultations conducted by the Welsh Government, the National Assembly for Wales' Committees and other national bodies, and produces position papers on policy issues relevant to Wales, as well as considering UK proposals from a Wales' perspective.

The RTPI Cymru responses and policy work is the responsibility of its Policy and Research Forum, supported by the Director and Policy Officer.
