Project Outline:

This is an exciting opportunity to study for a funded PhD at the intersections of law, regulation, public health, and procurement. The successful candidate will be based in the Centre for Health, Law, and Society at the University of Bristol Law School. They will join TRUUD: a large research consortium seeking substantially to improve population health in the highly interdisciplinary and complex area of urban development decision-making.

The PhD will be undertaken full time over three years, starting September 2022. Supervised by Professors John Coggon and Albert Sanchez-Graells, leading experts respectively in public health law and economic law and procurement, the project will assess how far public health considerations regarding non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are or may be effectively taken into account (if at all) in procurement in the context of urban development. It will study both the constraints and incentives provided by the regulatory environment, for public buyers and private tenderers, focusing on two central questions:

  • To what extent do/may public health considerations fit within the emerging concept of social value in the UK’s post-Brexit procurement regulatory framework; and
  • Does the regulatory framework create adequate incentives for public buyers and private tenderers to cooperate effectively in the maximisation of public health values within taxpayer-funded public contracts?

Background

TRUUD is part of the UK Prevention Research Programme, which aims to deliver changes that reduce the burden of disease and health inequalities, and enable people to live longer, healthier lives. Many factors influence our health, from the communities we live in, to the design of cities and transport systems, quality of housing, and education we have access to. TRUUD seeks to examine how decision-making and issues of power and control in the urban development arena might be influenced to better take account of the prevention of NCDs, including mental health. TRUUD is a highly integrated programme of work, coordinated across five universities, two local government partners, and a wide range of disciplines including: public health, urban development, policy, economics, systems engineering, management, real estate investment, and law.
