Our discussion papers provide authentic and independent research about the creative industries and an informed discussion of the policy issues that shape or support them. We encourage researchers both in the PEC and beyond to contribute to the series. See the guidelines for discussion papers and submit a PEC discussion paper for consideration to our Research Director Bruce Tether at firstname.lastname@example.org
See our current research programme for key publications through to March 2021 including current research commissions and co-commissions.
