Discussion Papers

Our Discussion Papers provide authentic and independent research about the creative industries and matters related to them, and an informed discussion of the policy issues that shape or support them. Discussion Papers can be evidence focused, policy focused, or both.

We encourage researchers both in the PEC and beyond to contribute papers to the series. Please see the Guidelines for Discussion Papers and get in touch with Bruce Tether, the PEC's Research Director, at bruce.tether@manchester.ac.uk if you would like to submit a paper for consideration as a PEC Discussion Paper.
