Network for Public Relations and Society

The Network for Public Relations and Society is an international research network based at London College of Communication exploring the practice of public relations (PR) from a social perspective. 

It brings together scholars and practitioners to explore the wider societal significance of PR and seeks to bring about change in the way it’s conceived and practiced. 

The impetus for the Network has emerged from the increased presence and significance within PR scholarship of sociological and social theoretical accounts of the field.
