External impact and engagement
Dr Alex Prichard was an impact case study lead for Department of Politics in REF 2021.
His research on anarchist constitutionalsing has supported the development of new organisations’ constitutions and democratic capacity. The impact of this research has reached across anarchist and radical democratic movements in the UK, to Europe and beyond, changing how a range of third sector organisations, including an independent union, housing and worker cooperatives, civil society organisations and NGOs, organise and constitutionalise.
