Ian McGimpsey’s research investigates the production of youth work subjectivity and practice in the context of youth service policy following the election of the Coalition Government. The research utilises Deleuze and Guattari’s notion of the assemblage to develop education policy sociological perspectives with respect the relations of policy to institutional spaces and processes of subjectivation

Dr McGimpsey also investigates approaches to youth unemployment and their effectiveness in co-ordination with the University of Birmingham’s Public Service Academy. This work supports the Public Service Academy’s contribution to research, policy and practice in a range of public service areas.
